Personal Development

The development of this chrome extension allowed me to grow my abilities to program in HTML, CSS and Javascript. It also enabled me to advance my skills in learning a new language, as I had never experienced programming a medium sized project in Javascript before. The project also allowed me to develop my understanding of how to design and create an interface, and the importance of input validation to ensure that the extension produces the results that the user is expecting.
