What Track 1
Who Evan Adams, Irin Kim
Google Fonts delivers free, open-source fonts to billions of pages across the web. In recent years Google has improved the quality of this collection, and added support for more and more languages. In 2018 they explored, validated, and shipped a data-driven CSS-only solution for CJK fonts, starting with Korean. In this presentation, software engineer Evan Adams unpacks how Google leverages their web index data to intelligently partition fonts to reduce latency, and optimizes for transfer size, number of requests, and cross-site caching. Irin Kim will also reveal the development and impact of the Korean-fonts showcase website, googlefonts.github.io/korean.
