# David Reveman - ARC++

[[Slides|Arcpp_Graphics.pdf]], [[Video|https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PflCyiULO4&t=2h10m22s]]

ARC++ provides existing and future Chromebooks with the ability to run applications from the Google Play Store. The performance and seamless integration into ChromeOS achieved by ARC++ is in large part a result of a carefully designed graphics stack. Rendering, compositing and window management has been designed to fit together in a way that makes no compromise on performance or resource usage.

This talk will give an overview of the pieces that make up the ARC++ graphics stack, describe how Wayland is used as a compositor protocol and explain how we achieve the goal of running Android applications on ChromeOS with native graphics performance and window management capabilities expected from an application running on a Chromebook. It will also provide some basic pointers for running Wayland clients on ChromeOS, and future direction.
