    1. Rosetta Code: a programming chrestomathy site. A collection of solutions to the same task in as many different languages as possible.

      I was recently looking for a snippet to show off syntax highlighting in multiple languages, but didn't want to write that snippet myself in those languages. So after a bit of searching I stumbled across this website, rosettacode.org. A programming chrestomathy2 that has a large collection of tasks with solutions to each in a bunch of different languages, for example all the FizzBuzz solutions. An excellent resource for what I was looking for, and maybe for you too. The About page:

      Rosetta Code is a wiki that aspires to do for programming what the Rosetta Stone did for Egyptian hieroglyphics. The concept was inspired by this list of "Hello, World" programs, and the realization that "Hello World", on its own, tells a new programmer very little about the language they're using.

      1. I decided to make this a text topic instead of a link since I'm not a fan of explaining the reason for posting in a comment. I think it deserves to be in the topic body.
      2. From Wikipedia: "Chrestomathy is a collection of selected literary passages (usually from a single author); a selection of literary passages from a foreign language assembled for studying the language; or a text in various languages, used especially as an aid in learning a subject."
