    I learned to code so I could effectively implement stuff I designed, to make it real in the way I intended. Over time, that had the added benefit of being able to communicate design to developers in terms they understand.

    I consider myself a full-time designer who knows how to code, but only in emergency situations (I currently work with really good developers).

    The way I learned is to design and build something for yourself, preferably a mobile app or web site you’ll use daily. Design, build and grow new dev skills as you iterate. Good luck!
