Ask DN: Should I learn to code?

    Learning to code is about so much more than syntax. It’s about learning the concepts and approaches developers use — how do they see the world? It’s a bit like an architect learning about engineering and building.

    On the other side is business. Learning those concepts and approaches is just as useful — again how do they see the world?

    This way you get to see design as being part of a greater process. Which area of that process is completely up to you.

      I agree, and there's so many different methods of building web projects with foundations and different types of syntax that I'll need to find what's right for me :-)

      Thanks for the advice Patrick.

      Yes. Learning business is as important as learning to code.
