Code Playground: Check Out a Project without Downloading the Code!
We've created a great new feature that we call the Code Playground. In a select number of Treehouse Projects and Deep Dives, we've added a new button below the video that allows you to try out the code immediately in the browser. This is slightly faster than downloading the code, loading it into a text editor, loading up a web browser, and so on. :)
This is available on most videos that teach front-end technologies like HTML and CSS. Here are two examples (click the "View Code Playground" button below the videos):

To quote from my earlier thread on this feature:
Also, this will make troubleshooting issues on forum when people have are having issues following along with the video forum so much easier.
This is great! One thing that's helped me tremendously is just opening random sites with Chrome dev tools and playing with all the CSS rules. Codepen mirrors that "tinkering" experience, and I'm glad to see it being incorporated with projects here.

I've mentioned this in another thread, but it would be awesome if Treehouse used CodePen.io's Professor Mode feature to do some cool stuff like coding hangouts or a Treehouse Member more in-depth about (or 'demystifying') a topic like Vertical Rhythm (CSS), advanced applications of stuff like
Backbone.js) in a variety of angles, and so on as a result of all sorts of members watching.
Maybe even do what Codepen.io did the past 4 weeks which was a weekly competition to encourage members contributing in a helpful way about topics or common design/developer problems that can be solved in a variety of ways.
