CHIFOO presents "Designers Stop Learning Code; Coders Stop Learning Design: A Better Solution to Improving Team (mis)Communication." with James Stone, James Stone Consulting!

Most designers may have heard something like, “learn to code like your life depends on it”. Some days it looks like everyone is searching for the mythical unicorn designer/developer. While individuals like this do exist that can cross disciplines, in general, this advice is misguided. Bad for you, bad for your team, and bad for your organization.
