Bio

The Code Snippets Company is an initiative by Shea Bunge (developer) & Verdi Heinz (web creator). While having different areas of expertise, they have the same continuous mission: “Enabling Web Creators to customize their websites safely and easily.” No need for Child themes and way fewer plugins.

WordPress Origin Story

Back in June 2012, Shea Bunge created a small plugin, simply to make it easier to inject code into functions.php. Much time was saved not having to use an FTP client and human error was also diminished. Over the years this free plugin was continuously improved and gained a large following.

By 2017 over 100.000 websites had the plugin running, using it to eliminate the need for Child Themes and preventing the use of many little plugins and the problems that come with that. By now a lot of Theme makers, plugin creators and hosting companies have Code Snippets mentioned on their website including their own snippet to fix problems or offer useful customization.

Around 2017/2018 Verdi Heinz saw the potential Code Snippets had, where it could go beyond the effective functions it already offered and shared those thoughts with Shea via Github. As it turned out, several of those ideas were already lingering in the back of his mind but he never thought people would be interested in a Pro version. No Pro, no funding, no development. Verdi did believe it could be successful so decided to fund it privately and a partnership was born.

They worked on what different formats and new functions the Pro version would offer. Going beyond that, a new social platform started forming where people can share and rate snippets, thus creating a community of people helping each other save time and do more with fewer plugins.

Finally, in 2019 the Code Snippet Pro company was founded. Shea would code, Verdi would focus on the business side of things and both of them would have one singular mission: Enabling Web Creators to customize their websites safely and easily. No need for Child themes and way fewer plugins.
