A new startup is looking to be the defacto place coders and developers visit to search for existing code examples. The brainchild of Yash Kumar, a former software engineer at Amazon, has launched a new company called Runnable. The startup is dedicated to making all of the open source code, and existing code examples easily findable.

The company has launched a website that aggregates APIs, scripts, and other reusable bits of code, which is said to greatly speed up the research and discovery process. Runnable says its users can search for specific code or APIs, upload and share their own code, and even search code by the language it was written in. Basically if you are a fan of 3D printing, Runnable is very much like Thingiverse.
