If you're a designer who wants to code, you can learn a lot from online tutorials, side-projects, and contributing to Open Source. However, unless you get to work on something with a significant user base, you're unlikely to get exposed to the experiences that will help you write production-level code. For most designers the best way to learn serious front-end development is on the job. Many companies want to attract designer-coders, but they need to back this up with a culture that embraces them, and supports designers with training, tooling, and documentation. In this talk you’ll learn how you and your team can build a designer-friendly coding environment to improve design workflows, team collaboration, and product design decisions.
