Home › Forums › Other › Does hand-coding make me a good designer?
I’ve been wondering…While I do know a bit of plain vanilla HTML/CSS, I do not know some of the latest commands and cannot handcode vendor prefixes. But when I use the emmet plugin, Sass or less, I kick ass.
Does this make me any less of a developer?
If you understand what Emmet, SASS & LESS kick out at the end…then no.
If you don’t then I would say yes. As a ‘developer’ you should understand what your code is for and doing.
BTW….a designer and a developer are not the same thing. You can be one or the other or both,
Knowing more about coding can only make you better. :)
true. again.. are you a bad developer if you don’t know to handcode?
@arachattack That’s a crucial part of being a developer.
@arachattack developer? yes.
designer? maybe. ;)
