Please note that students who join our free Coding Bootcamp Prep course after September 4th, 2018, will not have to worry about Sandbox. You will be able to explore this feature as you join us in our paid programs.

The Sandbox is an environment that you can access on “readme” and “code-along” lessons in Learn by clicking on the "Sandbox" button.

It’s a great place to experiment with code when you’re not working on a “lab” (labs open the IDE In Browser). 

The work you do in the Sandbox will be saved from lesson to lesson, and is automatically saved on your behalf to a repository in your GitHub account called “learn-co-sandbox”. 

Please do not touch this repository in GitHub, as it will affect your Sandbox experience, and potentially cause your work to be out of sync.
