Web Extensions, Womoz & Privacy

Posted by Sanyam Khurana on Tue 23 January 2018

A Saturday well spent teaching students about Open Source, Add-ons and Privacy.

We had an activity at Indira Gandhi Delhi Technical University for Women (IGDTUW) for Addons, WoMoz and Privacy.

The session started with Trishul giving a talk on getting started with Add-ons. He explained about Web Extensions and how they are useful. He also depicted some of the extensions built by the community. He explained the use of manifest file and then students started making simple add-ons on their own. The borderify Web Extension was chosen to teach students. Me, Trishul and Shivam helped them whenever they were stuck.
