Ask DN: Where are all the UI engineers?

    I wonder as well. I personally do CSS/LESS/SASS & HTML as well to help out our front-end engineer (who hates to do it himself and prefers to focus on react/the framework itself.) Even tho I was told I am doing pretty well, if I change the job I probably won't put it on my CV as it's not something I would want to do every day. I prefer to focus on Design and Prototyping rather than 'hack around' with ancient technologies that take ages to adapt new things and were not designed with todays needs in mind.

    That said I am really interested to hear thoughts of other people as to my understanding these 'web ui designers that implement their design and get corrupted along the way' are pretty rare creatures.

      I've just shared my views in this area all over this thread : ) I dig what you are saying. I code too but Angular or something is too much for me. I, personally, am more of a creative humanist kind rather than strict coder. I wouldn't imagine a programmer working with users and then sitting and coding what turned out from user research. It's like butcher preparing a luxurious dinner.
