Get Started with Framer
We’ve seen different prototyping tools appear in the last few years. Most of them only let you create simple click-through prototypes. But with Framer, you can design the complete user experience, and tweak interactions and animations until they’re "perfect". In this workshop, you’ll learn the essentials of using Framer by creating a complete prototype.
Who is it for?
This workshop is for mobile app designers who want to create interactive prototypes that look and feel like the real product.
We’ll write bits of CoffeeScript, so there’ll be some "coding", but no prior programming knowledge is required.
Make your designs interactive
You’ll learn how to import your existing designs from Sketch, Figma or Photoshop and bring them to life in Framer.
Design in Framer
Framer also has its own design environment, so you can make a prototype and change how it looks at the same time, by switching between Design and Code.
Basics of coding
You’ll learn some programming basics like variables, functions, arrays, objects, and if-then-else statements.
More about the day
Framer’s Design tab is much like Sketch or similar screen design tools. We’ll look at what’s more or less the same (shape and path tools, Boolean operations…) but also at what’s different (nesting instead of groups, automatic responsive layouts…)
A quick overview of the basic concepts: Animations, States, and Events. How to make screens scrollable, pageable. How to make objects draggable and pinchable. How to animate, tweak an animation’s timing and curve, delay animations, repeat them, trigger animations with user actions, how to chain animations.
We build a complete prototype from scratch, step-by-step. We’ll use different techniques and make the occasional pit stop to take a closer look at a programming concept with the aid of example prototypes.
You’ll need to bring your Mac with Framer installed (there’s a free 14-day trial).

Where is it?
Tes used to freelance building websites for a decade, then made a few mobile apps. And then got sidetracked into writing The Framer Book after a search for the best prototyping tool. He now also teaches Framer at Projector.
He’s from Antwerp, but hardly ever in Belgium. Right now he wishes there were a decent taqueria near his place in Buenos Aires, and he often misses borscht when not in Kyiv.
