I've an interview on Friday for the role of a UX designer. The job description says 'require HTML & CSS skills'. While I know the basics of HTML& CSS, I have not done coding. Can you share some of the potential interview questions?
If you're not very familiar with the coding and want a refresh, checking out w3schools css tutorial doesn't hurt: http://www.w3schools.com/css/
Like the post above me says, It's good to know how a page is layed out in HTML with divs and styled with CSS.
I'd also recommend going over some JQuery, as it adds a lot of the magic to the UI of a site. It may be a good idea to know the new trends with HTML5 and CSS3. Check out this site: http://webdesignledger.com/tips/html5-css3-take-your-design-to-another-level for a quick crash course on what's new!
A lot of job postings require HTML and CSS skills so that you can speak the same language with front end developers and know the limitations of implementing a design, how long it would take, whats most feasible, etc. Browser compatibility may be important, in general, not just about html and css skills. I'd recommend googling what features browsers don't support.
Also, typically how much coding does the role of a UX designer require?
It depends on the role, sometimes there's no coding at all, sometimes you might want/need to show actual mockups / prototypes in a browser, sometimes you might design and code!
PS: I see that some questions related to CSS have been closed. Can you please guide me to the right forum to post the question if this is not the right one.
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/css there's a link to stack overflow tagged with CSS questions asked, it may help to go over them quickly?
Good luck in your interview Tara!
