National Learn to Code Day

During this experience, we’ll 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.

Learners will utilize developer tools to explore things like DOM manipulation and leave with a personalized extension installed in their browser. We’ll also provide resources for learners to modify the extension for additional browsers, and make it available for others to install and use!

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
