How Should Designers Learn To Code?
April 6, 2020
I came across this intriguing two-part series of articles on learning code by Paul Hanaoka for Smashing Magazine. There are a lot of tips and tricks here, and some things I wish I would’ve known sooner. Part 2 was most useful for me as I’m discovering aspects of programming/engineering principles through my job currently.
New areas of learning, such as tokens and components, have changed how I think about design. I believe coding is a beneficial skill for designers to have, not only so you can code, but also so you can apply the types of thinking that coding requires into your design practice.
