CAREER ADVICE:WANT A HIGH PAYING JOB THIS YEAR BECOME A DESIGNER WHOALSO CODES! ABI?

This is  new year and each day I will add with every post career advice, and my advice today is to become both a software designer and an engineer all in one! You know you can do it

So what exactly do I mean by this  well here is a clip from an article in INC.com which I must say I found terribly interesting.


It's no mistake that this is very much the sort of thing that is most valued within the most effective software teams in Silicon Valley. Let's call it "the designer who codes." This is the sort of person can build exactly what he knows people need, with an aesthetic that compliments its use, with no back-and-forth.

Silicon Valley start-up Quora does it this way to great effect. They take the process simplicity tothe next level. Every person on lead designer Rebekah Cox's team is also an engineer. The design doesn't happen in Photoshop. It happens in the text editor, in code.

So what is the take away from this? Do not think just because you design you  do not need to learn about the process of actually making the code. It helps you would be more vaulable in your  company than a straight up designer who knows nothing about code; then again both sides of the brain would work perfectly what is your take?
