If you’re a professional developer and you want to assist young people in learning the art of coding how about adding a snipte to your websites source code.
What is a snipte?
A snipte is a string of code written by you, the developer, that has been hidden within the websites source code! These strings of code or “sniptes” can only be found by viewing the source code of certain websites. If the snipte is cut and pasted into a text editor, saved as a .html and run the user can see what cool game lies in store. If you view the source on www.CoderDojo.org you will find an intersting example of a snipte!
