Ask DN: Should I learn to code?
almost 7 years ago from Dan Wilkinson, Web Designer
I've been contemplating this for a while now, and know that there's going to be a few people on here who were/are in the same boat as me on this subject.
A little bit about me – I'm a designer grad, been at my current workplace for nearly three years now where particularly I've grown to love screen-based design, designing websites for the most part.
I've always had a bit of knowledge of HTML/CSS, as I'm sure a lot of designers do but never had the ability to build something from scratch. I feel the passion is there that I'd like to go on and build websites once designed them but at the minute I don't have the ability. I'd love to get into designing and building more web-apps and mobile apps in the future – something I haven't had the privilege of doing in the current position.
I know this question's probably been asked a bunch of times in the past, but with there being so many different ways to learn or go about learning to develop websites I thought I'd see if anyone has any advice to offer, places to start or just general pointers that may steer me in the right direction.
Big thanks for those in advance if there's any way you can help :-)
