#223: Streaming

Cassidy and Marie are here to chat about livestreaming for developers. We get into how we’ve used live streaming to learn and share in the past and how CodePen is planning to use live streaming in the future on our new Twitch channel.

#222: Trash Can

Marie and Chris are talking trash this week about our newest feature — a restore option for deleted Pens! We get into the whys and hows of this frequently requested feature.
