This section will be covering different ways you can automate repetitive and menial tasks that we have to do on a daily basis.

What to expect

I will be walking through a tutorial on how to write jQuery expressions and demonstrate how they can be used to save a lot of time. 

Who should attend

Anyone who has ever had an interest in automating simple and menial tasks. 

Valuable takeaways

  • Get a basic understanding of how the web works
  • Learn how to install and create a customized Chrome extension 
  • Write some simple jQuery commands
