A solid basis in coding ensures that you and your team will have a common language when sharing views about your design.


After your ideas have gone on to take root, you’ll be empowered to set together your own prototypes and examples to discuss with developers, cutting down on any chances for misunderstandings or nuances being mislaid along the way.


Not only will coding skills pay dividends in your profession as a designer, but they’ll add an extra layer of confidence in navigating the domain of tech, where coding is a universal language.


Large companies like Google list experience with HTML, JavaScript, and CSS as minimum requirements for UX positions. So, by equipping yourself with a decent foundation in coding, you’ll be enabled to carry your design expertise into your dream job in the tech industry.


As referenced in an article on CNN from The Center for Digital Education, coding education in elementary schools promotes increment in problem-solving, critical thinking, math, creativity, and collaboration.


At its core, “unicorn” is a term in tech hiring, entitling a person who’s both a developer and a designer. In fact, there doesn’t need to be anything mythical about this so-called uncatchable creature.
