Announcing the VS Code Snippets egghead Community Challenge

We are excited to announce the first egghead Community Challenge!

From today Sept 22st until Monday, October 5th, you will have a chance to win some badass prizes by creating VS Code snippets that are helpful for developers!

What are Code Snippets?

Code snippets are templates that make it easier to enter repeating code patterns, such as loops or conditional-statements.

Why Participate?

One of the primary principles of egghead is that we are a "community of practice". One of the tenets of a community of practice is sharing resources that make us better at our craft.

Code snippets speed up workflow and productivity. Creating and sharing some useful snippets will help the community as a whole.


  • Time-Saver: Save developers time
  • Laugh out Loud: This is something fun like emoji art
  • Pain Relief: Take away any headache like REGEX

How To Submit


You will be invited to a group DM on discord where we will share resources to help get you to start creating and sharing snippets.

You can also ask questions, get tips, and share ideas with other challenge members.

I highly suggest sharing on social media your progress using #eggheadchallenge
