NEWS: Online Event | Why bother? Coding for Designers Really, why should a creative mind bother learning how to code? Innovecs (international software development company) spots a trend of hiring designers with coding skills. It can be one of the most rewarding competency. Let’s discuss it with two experts from ironSource: Playworks Studio Art Director Giacomo Maragliulo & Manager of Creative Operations Emmanuel Bergman. Talking points we’ll cover: ~ To code or not to code, that is the question. ~ Turn your ideas into a product — bring your design to real life. ~ How code influences design decisions. ~ Code as a medium to create a great user experience. ~ More marketable and adaptable designers on the market. The designer doesn’t have to become an expert coder, but understand a developer’s perspective. It leads to “shared understanding” and better understanding of the project’s technical needs and limitations. Useful for: ~ designers, graphic designers, 3D / 2D artists; ~ recruiters & HR managers; ~ team leads, PM. Join the talk to deep dive into the new designers’ reality!
