Browser extensions are small software programs that modify and enhance our experience on the web. They range from playful to practical, with the goal of doing one thing, well.
Extensions can help customize our browsing experience, or increase productivity by reducing repetitive tasks. In this workshop, we will use code as a tool of empowerment, to develop agency and harness change through building our own extension for Google Chrome!
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
- load and update extensions using Chrome’s developer mode
- get an idea of the resources available in order to continue learning
