- 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?
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?
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).
