Now I want to put something in a logo which can represent that we do coding or at least signifies coding or something that's related to code


{ P = () * etc

What's the smallest character or symbol (max 3 characters) or anything else which can signify code? I don't have space for an image, I can hold only 1-3 characters

Many icons (including one used at the Stack Exchange sites) representing code are comprised of an empty set of curly braces.

{ }

    Programmers.se's logo works great too: /* Programmers */ Although comment block expresses more about commentary and the subjective side of coding (which probably is the intent in that case). Jul 18, 2011 at 9:20

    Could also add an ellipsis inside the braces and still remain within 3 character limit. {…} (well, you could if HTML entities worked in comments)

</> is most common I think since it represents HTML and some markup languages.


I believe you mean coding as programming. So therefore I can imagine something like f() or a[0] would be quite nice in relation to modern programming languages. Other ideas, but containing slightly more characters: int *ptr;, void *.
