You can post code directly to a question and highlight it with markdown. Below your textbox is a markdown cheatsheet link, that explains how to use it.

If you want to share a workspace there is a small camera icon at the top right that allows to to create a snapshot. When you then click on the created link, it brings you to this snapshot. You can copy this link and post it here, so everybody else can access it. This is looking like this: https://w.trhou.se/lwsuo5xle5

Fork is essentially. The word comes from the world of version control systems like github, but for now, you can think of it as a copy. You can fork the shared snapshots of other people to make changes, or fork your own snapshot to keep your original work.
