I believe that empathy can help make you a better coder.

I'm new to coding, but I have come to realize the amount of accessibility options across websites and apps that have become available within recent years, to help those who need it. With empathy, it helps coders step into another person's point of view; to help us see what may help others navigate those services, and improve upon or add more accessibility options. In turn, we may also gain new insight and come up with new, exciting, creative ways of improving general user experiences.

I think :)
