Designers Shouldn’t Code Redux

My experience in the last year has hardened my position since writing Designers Shouldn’t Code (Much).

I have tested and designed websites, apps and connected devices (Internet of Things) and to either create the prototypes or code natively would require the following skills:

HTML and CSS obviously; Visual Basic for financial applications (yep, the City still uses VBA front ends in Excel and Access); X-Code for iOS; Java for Android; Python for Raspberry Pi; Arduino; soldering; and finally cabinet making and carpentry.

The UX Unicorn that has powers to design and code has become increasingly mythical.
