The Lonely Coder's Club, a Slack community of newsroom programmers without big teams, would like to present our favorite, most-used code snippets. We've translated these snippets to most common coding languages and commented the heck out them so you can plug and play with ease!

During this session, a few Lonely Coders will go through our favorites on the list and how they help save us time on project after project. We’ll also share tips on how you can start writing your own reusable code, no matter how lonely a coder you are.
