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!


Agenda:  We will be raffling T-shirts and books!

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.

We are greatly appreciative of your support and hope to continue bringing you great speakers and events from CodeChix.

CodeChix - BayArea

CodeChix is a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives (501c3).  It is an organization for local women developers run by local women developers in a non-alpha, language/os agnostic, supportive environment with an emphasis on face-to-face communication. It is the first group of its kind and started in 2009 in San Jose, CA.

The key goals of CodeChix are to educate, promote and mentor women engineers and developers.  We foster continuous learning, provide mentorship/guidance and create a local community of women developers. The original chapter of CodeChix is in the Silicon Valley/Bay Area with additional chapters in Seattle/Redmond. The CodeChix slogan is “May the code be with you…”.

CodeChix organizes Hacking Sessions, Technical Talks and Technical Workshops. Past events include Wikipedia’s Operations Infrastructure, Algorithms and Directed Acyclic Graphs, Mobile/Graphic Design for Engineers Workshop, Toy Robotics: My little Pleo, OpenShift Workshop, Android Installfest & App Building 101, Hacking Raspberry Pi and Javascript Plugins Workshop.
