Why I think designers shouldn’t code(medium.com)

    The statement is pretty backwards. Sure a user may never look at or touch your code, but that code renders a visual interface in the browser, that either is or is very similar to what they will ultimately be interacting with.

    Additionally, it implies that other methods of designing are "closer" to the user's experience, but a user will likely never see your static comps or whatever else you create to hand off for implementation. And since those things are inherently not the thing your user will ultimately be interacting with, they are in fact, farther from the user's experience than rendered code.
