    If your role involves designing UI and/or interactions, I think learning even the basics of HTML/CSS/JS goes a really long way. Do designers "need" to, not really. But it helps tremendously.

    Anecdote obvs but it's drastically improved how I've communicated with the devs on my team. Especially in terms of interactions. I can quickly make a component in Codepen, make it look exactly how I have it in my designs, and make the interaction exactly how I imagine it would work. Less guesswork by the devs. Less going back and forth with "Nah it's still missing X. The timing for Y feels weird".
