This 8-week, part-time course covers the most important frontend development skills, with no prior coding knowledge necessary. By the end of the course, you’ll have built your own personalized, fully tested website to host your design portfolio. Not only that: you’ll be able to confidently communicate the technical requirements of design, ready to apply your newfound skills to your next real-world project.
Become the go-to person for projects intersecting UX, UI, and frontend development.
With rising ratios of designers to developers, good designers need to be able to think and speak the language of developers. It’s their job to help translate the design vision to the development team in a way that they can understand and accept. This can be a critical piece of the puzzle in a project, especially if the design and the interactions behind it are complex.
With a foot in both camps and the ability to speak to both in their own terms, UX/UI Developers can be invaluable conduits between engineering teams and the more 'traditional' usability roles, such as interaction designers, visual designers.
