Nashville Web Designers Can Learn To Code, Too

By JJ Rosen|March 14th, 2013|Programming, Web Design|no comments

Amy Rochelle has been a Nashville web designer for the past ten years.

She is truly unique in that she knows  how to do web design and also how to program equally well.

What is even more unique is that she is one of the best at both skills.

As most of us know, there and very  few people who can design AND code.   Amy started as a designer and was formally educated in graphic design.   She worked for Ingram Industries and then when she started at Atiba, she decided to learn to program ASP.Net, Flash, and jQuery.

I was curious how she approached learning design and programming – as they are often completely opposite skills-sets and require completely different ways of thinking.

Some highlights from my interview with  Amy:

“I decided I needed the learn to code so I could be a better designer.   I used to deliver a PhotoShop file to a developer, and here and there the designs I was doing would kind of force the developer to code around the design in a way that would cause a ton of extra work.    So when I first started learning the code, it was really just a way to be more efficient in my design”

“Web design was natural for me, as I was always into creating and art.  Coding took me around 3 months of frustration climbing the learning curve.   But…when it clicked, it all came clear.    And I started loving it.   Coding, like web design, actually involves a lot of creativity.   You have to be creative to solve programming challenges.   You have to think outside of the box when troubleshooting.”

“I spend about half my time coding and half designing.   Some of the coding I do at Atiba is backend, with no design needs at all.   I like having some variety as it allows me to pick and choose how I spend my day.”

“I would recommend for web designers who want to learn programming, that they start simply reading programming books.   I read a Wrox book on ASP.Net before I even attempted to actually code.    I think this helps designers see the big picture of programming and makes the details less intimidating.”

 

More to come…
