    Thanks for your time Chris :) I have a question for you ?

    You have some coding skills ? Now there is the idea of the UI and UX designers need to know programming like know how to do the frontend part or maybe draw the UI in Android Studio with XML or put all the assets in the storyboards of X-Code... This happens a lot in small and mid size startups. What is your point of view of this ?

      I have 0 coding skills. If people can develop and design, that’s awesome, but I don't see it as a requirement. I think however its far more important for designers to be familiar with the development process, and to have an understanding with the developers they work with.
