Happy Friday and welcome to this week’s Coffee Break!

Last weekend, Udacity hosted Girl Develop It in our office for a day-long workshop introducing concepts in User Experience Design, or UX. Girl Develop It empowers women of diverse backgrounds across the world to learn software development, and we had a great time talking with everyone about broadening access to education in UX and programming.

Watch Coffee Break for interviews with Sheba Najmi, Girl Develop It instructor for UX programs, and Pamela Fox, Girl Develop It organizer and programming instructor. Sheba and Pamela weigh in on why it is important to learn UX as well as programming. Let us know in the comments why YOU think it’s important to learn UX and programming!
