Frequently Asked Questions
FramerX is coming. Why do I need Framer now?
Okay, I intentionally made this the first FAQ. Lets talk about the facts I could pull out from the discussions on the Slack group.
- FramerX is a completely new tool
- FramerX will eventually replace Framer.
- FramerX will not have coffeescript anymore
- FramerX follows ES6 which is basically coffeescript transpiled. In fact, you can simply convert this online today. -
) -> ES6 ( lebab.io
. If you look at the converted one, they look super alike! When it comes out, I'll put a course on changes from Coffeescript to ES6 right here!
- FramerX will eventually
replace Framer. Which means, Framer is here for a while at least. Also, the programming fundamentals you learn here, are going to be the same if you switch over to ES6. Just React is going to be an addition, but trust me, its really simple! I'll make a course on this too :)
So I say go ahead and learn Framer. I'll assure you switching over is going to be easy as a breeze and I'm going to stick around to help you with that.
Why should I pre-book?
The course is currently in the making and I'm aiming at publishing one video every weekday ( You can check out the trello board
to see the progress ). Pre-booking this course firstly allows you to purchase the course at a heavily discounted rate. Secondly being one of the first few students I will also be able help you with any queries and issues actively. This gets harder when there are too many people.
How long will it take to complete the course?
Depends on how you want to learn. I strongly recommend completing a prototype, take another day or two to build your own concept based on what you learn, share this with the community or post it on your dribbble page and then learning the next one.
So ideally, 2-3 days per prototype.
I have zero knowledge in programming. Can I still follow along?
Absolutely. This course focuses on beginners who come from zero knowledge in programming. Make sure to start with the course "Getting started with Framer" where instead of boring you with theory we'll practically build a simple todo app as we learn programming.
What if its too hard for me to follow?
This course has been made keeping a total beginner in mind. If you find any of the content difficult to follow, do comment right below the video. I'll respond to you as quick as I can and add any relevant material to the course or even take out the time to help you understand what's missing.
Can I start building any prototype on Framer after this course?
Yes! You will learn all the fundamentals by building prototypes. By the end of this course you will become familiar with how to approach any concept you want to prototype. I'll also share some useful resources and show you how to find solutions to problems you may face while building.
Should I purchase Framer to follow along this course?
Not immediately! You can download the 15 day trial from the Framer website to get started. Once you get comfortable with the tool, you can pay for their monthly pricing or annual. I've taken the annual package. However, Framer library ( the code behind framer studio ) is absolutely free and open source. If you choose to simply use framer library to build prototypes you can definitely do that. I'll also be speaking more about this in the course.
What if I need some help?
You have discussions within in every video in the course. At first I would encourage you to see if someone else has posted a similar issue that has been addressed. If you don't find any you can definitely post yours and I will address them as soon as I can!
Is there a student discount?
Of course there is! Send me a copy of your valid student ID to email@example.com
and I'll send you a 50% discount coupon.
How else can I benefit from this course?
Each prototype we will build in the course focuses on few unique features that come together to build it. If you take those concepts and come up with a different idea, after every section you can have your own prototype that you can showcase on your portfolio.
You can even take this up as challenges and create one prototype after every course to showcase on your dribbble profile or any social media. This can really help you establish yourself as a creator.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
I love to teach and I'm driven by the only goal to make things easy for you to learn. If you are unhappy with the content or you are facing any other issues, you can write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
within the first 30 days and I'll refund you your entire course fee, guaranteed.
Do you provide a certificate of completion?
Yes, as of now you will receive a certification from me personally. I'll be working with more established certifying partners to make this certificate more valuable.
