Heads up! This blog post hasn't been updated in over 2 years. CodePen is an ever changing place, so if this post references features, you're probably better off checking the docs. Get in touch with support if you have further questions.

Some other pages include embedded Pens, like "Thinking in React" page that walks through the creation of an interactive component in a React-y way.
