What are the pros and cons if a Designer has ability to write program codes?

Do you think it's advantage a Designer should learn all the web programming codes?

Please share your thoughts. Thank you!

Thanks for the comment Hannie! I can see where are you comming from as far as individual contribution is concern. a multi-skillset is always advantage and helpful. Me myself has technical background from development itself for a quite long time.

In my opinon, there maybe a cons in case a UX designer has a lack of knowledge as far as UX general practice for example, conducting interview, task analysis, usability metrics and so on..

A designer can focus to be edgy or techy sometimes, however in the end of the day we always find ways how to be effective delivering user centric design.

Appreciate your thoughts!

I am a UI/UX/web designer and developer with comprehensive skill sets.  A designer has ability to write program codes has all pros no cons.  e.g. A web design must have CSS/javascript skills.
