I wanted to create something like the end credits of a movie for the colophon on this site. CodePen is great for sketching things out like that. It was a good exercise in flexbox and grid. Not to brag (maybe a bit), it was a Picked Pen on the CodePen front page. It’s encouraging when others see and like work I do. I’m a bit code shy, which is one of the reasons I got a CodePen Pro account: pens are private by default.
