There are so many misunderstandings and misconceptions around what is required to get into UX as a career, and I thought it might be useful to bust a few of those myths.
The one that I hear the most is that being able to write code is a pre-requisite. [B]You do not need to know how to code[/B] in order to get into a career in UX. It’s valuable but not essential. A practical understanding of how a site is put together is useful, particularly when it comes to communicating with developers. If you want to learn, a basic knowledge of HTML and CSS would be a good place to start.
