Teaching Front-end on CodePen
April 06, 2015
The sound of metal chairs hitting the stairwell on the way up as I prepare for the morning class on Saturday at the downtown office. My workshop was to start at 9am followed by Trent's Responsive session at 1pm.
I sent out an email for my attendees to sign up for a free CodePen account. I knew using CodePen would be a lot easier than getting everyone setup on the same environment locally. CodePen turned out to work beautifully. I found that the right column layout for editors made it easier to use when presenting.
At the end of my workshop (for the last hour) I gave my students a task to build out an online resume and I would be going around helping one-on-one. I made a collection on CodePen of those student pens I could find.
