Intro to Browser Extensions with JavaScript

November 16, 2019 @ 10:00 am 4:00 pm

During this experience, you will learn the basics of JavaScript – with a focus on variables and loops – and use this programming language to interact with websites to perform tasks like replacing or modifying content. We’ll explore permissions and discuss ethics around extensions to help learners protect their privacy online. 

Brought to you by #ladies learning code. This workshop is designed to be a hands-on experience, where learners will:

  • learn basic programming techniques and concepts that are translatable to other programming languages
  • review the basic building blocks of how HTML, CSS, and JavaScript work together to create richer online experiences
  • load and update extensions using Chrome’s developer mode
  • modify and replace elements using JavaScript (more kittens on the web!)
  • get an idea of the resources available in order to continue learning

Prerequisites: None… This workshop is designed for beginners!
