A few word about the project and its goals.


30 seconds of code is an accessible high-quality knowledge base for developers of all skill levels, established in 2017. Since then, hundreds of short code snippets and programming articles have been created with the help of a large community of contributors. The goal is to make software development more accessible and help the open source community thrive by helping people learn to code.


30 seconds of code is developed, maintained and curated by Angelos Chalaris. I'm a professional software engineer, based in Greece, and 30 seconds of code is a side project I work on in my free time. My love for development and learning is what sparkled this idea and I've put a lot of effort into making it the best resource I've never had when I started out as a developer.

All of the photography on the 30 seconds of code website as well as other media used is provided by Unsplash. Instead of adding credits to individual images, I have opted to create an image collection to better showcase all of the images used and connect users with photographers.
