Build Your Own WebExtension Add-on for Firefox – Flisol 2017 Jaboticabal

Flisol 2017

Last weekend (08/04) Flisol (Latin American Festival of Free Software Installation) happened for the first time in the city of Jaboticabal.

The event was held at the Colégio Técnico Agrícola at FCAV UNESP Jaboticabal and was attended by 25 people throughout Saturday. Two workshops were held during the event, but I will focus here on the Mozilla activity I did with the participants. I want to thanks Geraldo Barros for the event configuration on Reps Portal and for the swag request (participants loved the gifts!)

Preparation

A few days before the Workshop, I started preparing the material to help guide the activity. Much of what was needed is on the activity page on the Mozilla Activate website. In addition to this material André Garzia translated a very useful page for the Workshop and a fork of the sample repository. Which is now also in the Github of JabukaMoz. #Mozlove for everyone who helped in this step directly or indirectly: D

Workshop

The activity began with a presentation on WebExtensions Add-ons and the demonstration of some examples, including one created only for the activity that exchange texts when accessing some sites.

As the audience had the most varied levels of Javascript knowledge the Workshop ended up flowing more for some more experienced and the beginners were modifying existing examples or making simple changes. The important thing here is that everyone was able to assemble at least 1 Add-on as simple as it was. I counted on the help of some participants to help beginners in JS’s basic questions and to ensure that everyone could build something.

Results

  • 25 people participated during the day;
  • 25 Add-ons were created and one of them was interested in knowing the process of publishing an Add-on;
  • 100% of the participants received an email with a link to the satisfaction survey and the links presented during the Workshop.

We expect to do more activities in the coming months and increase the number of interested participants in publishing the Add-ons created during the Workshop.

I want to thank everyone once again for contributing to the event and the success of the Workshop!
