Why designers should learn react?

almost 5 years ago from , Marketer

I am an interface designer. I know a basic of html and css. But i don't know anything about JS.

Then, I read many tweets about React for Designers. My question is: should i learn react? is it really matters for ui designers?

    I think you shouldn't if you want only to design stuff.

    If you want to create something cool and powerful you should understand the principles of programming to find out what is achievable and what not. If you understand how something works and how it is put together you will learn to design for it. You will be a better designer. A designer isn't just all about designing cool stuff. It is more about understanding how and why something is build together also by whom and why.

    We as designers merge different fields/expertise to a final product so we have to understand decision made by others and need to understand why. Because this will shape our idea of an design. We are interdisciplinary.

    Check out this post I wrote a bit earlier, and let me know if it makes sense! :)

    I interviewed some designers and put together their thoughts in this post.
