Hello PH! Glad to share this Chrome Extension with you. Recently I became responsible for mentoring two junior developers at my job and I got an idea to create this project. Hope you'll like it. All feedback is welcome. Looking forward to hearing what all of you think!

Instead of a new tab page, why not a simple website where a piece of advice is displayed randomly at each refresh?

Pros:

Good concept, always keen on learning new stuff

Cons:

I don't like it to be on the New Tab Page. I already have a NTP extension that I don’t plan to replace.

Hi Eli, Thanks for the review! I understand that if there is an extension you are used to having on new tab, you wouldn't want to replace it. However this was from the plan imagined as a new tab extension. That being said, what I could possibly do is create a web version of the extension in the future 😄
Got to pick one buddy! The idea of it popping up on NTP is the core value prop.
I had this same problem with WorkingOn extension - so instead I use chrome extension Crontabs that opens WorkingOn tab every hour, mon-fri. If you locate the url of the chrome extension you can schedule the tab to open to front however often you like using Crontabs. The 30 Seconds of Knowledge extension will have to be installed and turned on, but you can give priority to your other extension for NTP control. https://chrome.google.com/websto...
Awesome idea. Do you plan on expanding it to other languages as well?
@graciousgarg I am planning to add more languages, however the initial stage of the extension is powered by other 30 seconds of projects (like 30 seconds of code, 30 seconds of css ...) If the extension gains some traction and users i plan on focusing my time to find collaborators that would like to write new snippets to get independent of the mention open-source projects.
@petrovicstefan Makes sense. Also now I get the reference in the name
My current new tab plugin shows me an awesome new cat everytime, but if I ever feel like being more productive, this seems like an excellent replacement.
@dkb868 Here is the deal, you tell me the name of the extension with cats and I'll use it instead of you, and you use this one for a while 🐈 🐾 . P.S. wasn't joking, that cat extension sounds great!
@dkb868 Oh GOD!!! I think I'll personally use this one but don't tell anyone!
Nice stuff you got there ... 😃
@vladimir_sb Thank you very much! 😊 🙏
