“I do no coding at all anymore,” Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux, told Dirk Hohndel, VMware’s VP and chief open source officer at 2019’s Open Source Summit in Europe. While it may have come as a shock to the entire developer community, coding has never been this interesting or engaging. In the same backdrop of Europe, coding is becoming more collaborative thanks to the rise of a new startup named CodeSandbox.
An idea is born
Bas Buursma, the co-founder of CodeSandbox is an excellent storyteller. He says the idea behind CodeSandbox started with his co-founder Ives van Hoorne when he was working with a Dutch auction website and was on a vacation. The story is one that will inspire numerous web developers. It starts with Ives and his stint at Catawiki where he was translating their webpage to React.
