Similar to other online, collaborative code editors like Github, CodePen lets other users make edits or suggestions on any project. There’s a Fork button at the top of every Pen, allowing different developers to split off with their own ideas. There’s also a Share button that allows users to post their code on Twitter, Facebook or Google+. You can also save as GitHub Gist or export as a .zip. Pens can also be embedded on any other site. It’s a great way to quickly write and preview code while testing bugs or asking for help. In addition to its code editor, CodePen also has a job board. Most of the jobs are for front end web development, but they’re scattered throughout the world. There’s also a Pro version of CodePen, but for most users the free version will suffice.
