Thanks for this article Meagan. I’ve always felt that designers who can code are more valuable, but any time that opinion is raised it always gets strong pushback from stubborn minority of designers who want to believe it’s not true. Part of the hurdle must be that they think it’s difficult to learn, but as you’ve pointed out, it’s really not. Thanks for providing an easy roadmap for designers to dip their toes into coding.
