You are living the dream of being a designer, you ride a fixie to work and have suitably coiffed hair, but you still feel like something is missing?

It's probably time you learnt how to code.

Join us as four experienced designers talk about their journey of making the transition from designer to designer/developer. In short talks followed by a panel discussion, you will hear about how damn hard it is to learn to code, but also about how empowering it is when you have the skills to develop your own designs.

Coding allows you to solve problems (and no longer at the mercy of the dev team) and allows you to understand what’s possible. When a developer says “it can’t be done”, do they really mean it’s impossible? Or that it’s more trouble than it’s worth?

The panel discussion will be followed by plenty of beer and a chance to chat with other designers in a similar position looking to take the plunge.
