On-demand freelance services for material writing and translation have actually become more prolific with services like Fiverr and Unbabel, and it is fair to assume it would be a matter of time before coding got the same treatment.

Our role as a platform is to offer both our customers and coders with the most ideal method to develop code together, Cohen noted.
