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 for empowerment, to develop agency and harness change by 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
None! This workshop is designed for beginners.
Who Is This Workshop For?
Our Ladies Learning Code program offers female-identified and male-identified, trans, and non-binary adults hands-on, project-based learning experiences that are designed to give beginners the skills and confidence they need to become digital creators. Ladies Learning Code programs tackle the tech gender gap one positive, empowering learning experience at a time.Our workshops, courses and meetups are open to adults of all ages and genders but are designed to be a space where women explicitly are welcome to learn. Workshops cover everything from introductory HTML & CSS, to WordPress, Python, Ruby, artificial intelligence, web design and more. They are especially popular and successful because of our high ratio (4:1 in most programs!) of learners to mentors at every experience, which is only possible because of overwhelming support from the communities in which we operate.
- 4:1 student-to-mentor ratio with an awesome lead instructor!
- Great venue with a fun, social and inclusive learning environment
- Catered lunch. Yum! We'll try our best to accommodate any dietary restrictions (no promises).
