Should I Learn How To Design Or Pick Up Coding?
You’ve wanted to get into the tech industry for a long time now, but you don’t know where to start. Maybe you’ve majored in a field that’s not as tempting as it once seemed. How do you transition from your career into tech?
How do you decide where to start?
Then, you take another course that teaches you UI/UX. You need a lot of practice to get a feel.
At the same time, you apply for a paid internship or traineeship and start working on your experience. It’s all about experience: the real world usually differs from the education world.
You could even create your own internship by making your own apps: learn about programming, UX/UI, marketing.
Connect the 3 disciplines together with communication. There’s no point in being a great programmer, designer or marketer if you can’t effectively communicate with team members. You might say: braf, communicating is easy. No it’s not!
Communication is all about mutual understanding and mutual benefit of working together. Find out what another person wants, and see if you can provide that. At the same time, find out if you want what the other person has and see if you can make an exchange.
But first, the really first… find out whether you actually like any of these disciplines! Try out a short guide online on programming, and see how it suits you.
There’s no point in wanting to get into tech, without having actually tried it first.
