Location is in the same complex as the Rosewood Hotel (it's behind it) - so, please look for it there.  We will try to have someone directing people or have signs.


Workshop:  Creating Browser Extensions 

In this seminar, software engineer Sharon Minsuk will draw on her experiences working on Kachingle's browser extension to give an overview on writing your own browser extensions.


Lunch and drinks Provided ! Please make sure to sign up since we will be ordering food based on headcount.


Level:  No knowledge of browser extensions needed. Should have some Javascript experience, but all levels encouraged to participate.


Instructor:  Sharon Minsuk

Back in 1989, Sharon Minsuk left her commercial software job (working on the Apple //e, in Pascal and assembly language!) and missed the internet revolution entirely while she was busy studying small sea creatures in a laboratory. She recently returned, working for over two years at Silicon Valley internet startup Kachingle, where she continually dared to venture into territory she knew nothing about, working on the JavaScript front end, the MySQL database, and the PHP in between. Somewhere along the way Kachingle needed a browser extension, and Sharon said "I can do that!" and proceeded to get one working on multiple browsers. And so can you!

Explanation of ticket price:

CodeChix is raising funds to apply for non-profit status. This is a hugely expensive process (on the order of $5K-$7K) and we would love to have any help we can towards this effort.  Please help us by signing up, coming to our event and donating towards these items.
