    I hope this triggers a wave of 'should coders learn to design' thinkpieces.

      Haha. I mean that's basically what I'm advocating for. Not full on design, but learning bits and pieces can make them better engineers.

        yeah, i think that's the best approach. Better collaboration and understanding of each other's jobs is more productive than just expecting designers to code.

          As a former engineer, I agree - but in this case both are relevant.

            Let me point out - I am a software developer, however I don't have a computer science degree/ engineering degree, hence I am not an engineer.

            Don't hate the player, hate the game. You can't call yourself an engineer without an engineering degree. I should rephrase my original shitpost with an asterix - coder =/ does not always equal /= engineer.

            But downboat away bruh

              Hey wantd to follow up with you cause I never meant to downvote you, I just wanted to learn how to downvote in general cause I saw you had a negative score yet see no downvote arrows across designer news. Any idea how to downvote in general? PS - upvoted you :)
