Topic: Coding, Languages, and Frameworks
What is this session about? Let's work together in a code-a-long session to build a Green Browser Extension. Follow the 'bouncing leaf' in the code and we'll have a browser extension built in no time. This extension will call the C02Signal API to check the carbon intensity of your part of the world. You can install it in Edge, Chrome, and Firefox, and always have a datapoint at your fingertips to check whether your region is experiencing intense carbon usage. Use this extension to make informed decisions on when to consume electricity.
Who is it aimed at? Students who enjoy building for the web or who want to learn more about this activity, or those with an environmental focus.
Why should I attend? If you are curious about building a browser extension but never had time to try, let's work together to build one and use it right away for good!
