    I had to pick up programming in JavaScript to help design better web interactions. Also, the nature of the ecosystem i find myself is quite tense. If you design alone and don't have programming skills, You'll be considered irrelevant after a while. At this stage, i consider myself a designer that codes. I can gather my user research, design prototypes, validate them and code them into responsive application. Lately, my current work challenged me to pick up Angular/typescript and build mobile apps with ionic 2 because there was a shortage of hands and I had to fill in.
