Hi Bettina, thanks for the response and sharing that article. I was not aware of that heated debate.

UX designer was one of the default options for the job role interest question in the 2016 New Coder Survey, so Quincy Larson is probably the right person to direct that question towards. I’d assume that a “basic understanding of code” was enough to warrant an inclusion. I’ll add a note in the article addressing your point.
