Coding Skills An advantage for UX Designers

  1. Better communication with developers
    - Having a shared vocabulary with the development team will prove to be a great advantage - exercising good communication will increase speed, efficiency and ensure that the design is implemented as intended.
    - The common ground will also help build a more solid partnership.
  2. Deeper understanding of products
    - Knowing how your design will actually come to life is an important part of understanding your product.
    - Designers who understand the components, the materials that make up their solutions will be more insightful and have a better informed perspective throughout the process.
  3. Increased efficiency and a realistic vision
    - Understanding limitations, implementation time, complexity, basically having an overview of the infrastructure required will offer you a more realistic perspective on the solution, and will translate into increase speed and smarter solutions.
  4. Superior tech vocabulary
    - Having an enriched perspective of the process of building products will results into being more articulate and confident when it comes to the conversations around your solutions.
    - You'll ask better questions, negotiate better, articulate and defend your decisions, feel more empowered.
  5. More employable
    - Although I am strongly against job openings that require designers having coding skills (these should be two separate roles, yes!), I do believe that having a broader palette of skills will make your more valuable on the job market.
  6. Enriched perspective and better skilled
    - Finally, learning a new set of skills is valuable in itself. With every new learning exercise of this kind we grow, not only as professionals but also on an individual level.
    - I'm always in favour of learning new disciplines, will always be a strong advocate for this!
