TechTalk: Build a Google Chrome Extension

Want to write a google chrome extension? Interested in the possibilities unlocked by blending a web app with a desktop app (the browser)? Just want to spend some time doing a bit of hands on code hacking?

Then you need to be at this Tech Talk. Greyson Parrelli - frequenter of fine hackathons, and builder of ridiculous chrome extensions - will build an extension in front of your very eyes.

And bring your laptops, because he'll show you how to do the same in this hands on Tech Talk.

    Great experience, my first Meetup

    What capabilities are necessary for whatever machine we bring? Will it be necessary to install anything? Will a Chromebook suffice?

      I apologize for my lack of understanding as I'm definitely an amateur. I only have html experience and some very limited experience with object-oriented stuff. I am bringing my son who is the real reason for attending. He does not have a mobile machine other than his tablet. He codes on a Mac at home. I only have access to a work machine that has Deep Freeze on it. Will that still work?

      Oh ok. As long as you have a text editor on a traditional OS (Mac, Windows, Linux, and I believe Chrome OS should be fine as well), you should be fine. A tablet on its own won't cut it, as you need full desktop Chrome to test an extension. If Deep Freeze is some sort of remote desktop, that'd work, but I imagine it'd be a pain to type on a tablet. Honestly, you'll be fine even if you can't code along. I'm making all of the things I do available online to look at afterwards, so as long as you get a general understanding of what's going on, you should be good to look at things on your own later. Hope that helps!
