Course Description

You will learn everything you need to know in order to create awesome Chrome Extensions. Besides theory, you will learn by tons of awesome, practical examples as well.

We will start from the beginning, and in each video, I will explain a new, important concept regarding extensions. But you will learn with practicing as well, because after understanding how things work, we will also implement it. You can code along, and after every video, you will have a complete, functional Chrome Extension.
