What's the technology stack of CodePen?
I remember Chris saying this in a podcast:
"All the work you do will be in the open. In the future you won’t have a CV — people will just Google you."
Do you see CodePen becoming that? a must have portfolio for Frontend engineers?
- What were some of the roadblocks while growing CodePen community and how did you overcome them?
- What are some super important insights that the team has gained while running CodePen?
- In your opinion what makes people come back to a community based website everyday? Any specific strategy that has worked well for CodePen?
Will CodePen release developer APIs for creating/editing/deleting pens from different applications?
Is sass/scss dead?!
What is next for CodePen?
Are there any easter eggs, or hidden details built into CodePen that aren't normally visible but are able to be found if you know where to look?
There are a lot of code scratchpads online, but only one community like CodePen. It's amazing you have been able to build (and maintain) such a large and varied community. So I'm wondering in addition to meetups, podcast, and blog posts, what strategies have helped you build the community to what it is today?
Have you guys realised that CodePen has the potential to compete with GitHub and GitLab in future? Is this your vision?
I LOVE CodePen, awesome Job!!
My question is: How you guys keep the CodePen CSS organized?
I know you went through your first round of hiring a year or two ago. Would you like to keep hiring in the future? Is there an ideal size you'd like CodePen to be (in terms of employee count)? I'm curious if you want to keep it small, or if you'd be open to mega-corp world dominance (in the social-platform-and-playground-for-front-end-web-tech space).
Who are your top 5 favorite CodePen users? 😃
What's the growth rate of CodePen pro user base every year?
Do you see CodePen Projects becoming a "complete" hosting solution for production level front-end projects?
If yes, a CLI to sync your local projects would be super 💯. Thoughts?
Will CodePen be more than just front end playground in future? If yes, how soon? If no, why not?
One should be able to create Java, Python, RoR, etc pens/projects on CodePen.
Whose idea it was to create CodePen? And how did you get this idea?
How close are CodePen and CSS-tricks? are these two separate projects or does the team get to work together?
How do featured pens work?
There are a million different frameworks, preprocessors etc etc out there. CodePen makes a (small but growing) subset of these available to users either by default or as options. How do you decide which tools make the cut?
Any memorable or inspiring moment that you can share with us when you were building CodePen in the initial phrase.
