Here at ALA, of course, it’s preaching to the choir. But Seiden’s quick, clear framing of the case makes it a fine article to share with colleagues who believe front-end code doesn’t belong in a “real” designer’s practice.

The topic discussed is really interesting and up-to-date! Thanks for touching it!
Thanks Jeffrey, for touching this topic! Many people view code as a restriction to a designer but actually it is liberating as it opens up a whole new realm of creative possibilities. Your design is executed the way you want it to be.
Maybe designers should’t code, but they need to have a deep understanding how their designs can impact the code. Basically talking about responsive design.
