    First you said you don't know coding and then you go on to say it "taught you more about coding" which is a bit a self contradictory.

    The question is, why spend hours (or days) building a prototype which cannot be used in production ? Sure you can share some of the "values" with your developers but that is just that! You can also use Facebook's Origami for pretty much everything Framer does without having to do deal with code.

      It taught me the basic concepts of code, about parent layers and how developers build the UIs that I design. I still would not consider myself an engineer or someone who truly can code beyond some simple interactions.

      I tried Origami, but found that if I was already going to spend so much time understanding the noodling system, I rather work on learning a skill that more translatable outside of just Origami.

      Of course whatever allows you to knockout a prototype effectively and communicate your ideas is what matters most at the end of the day. For me that is still Framer.
