Should Designers Code?
Alan Cooper

I agree with you but there are a lot of employers who like designers who code because they think it’s saving them money. But if it takes me longer and the quality of code is dubious, maybe it’s not really saving them money? I do it because I like it but I would never consider myself a ‘real’ coder.

As someone who is using PHP, Javascript and C#, installing frameworks from linux command lines to use SASS and nodejs etc, configuring apache servers and trying to keep up with the endless barrage of technical terms — I feel like I might be ruining my career. Am I going to end up a jack of all trades but master of none? I’m sure an expert could do it a lot faster than me and know more about the most efficient code structure to accomplish the task that doesn’t end up getting hacked.
