Figma Files behind a paywall?!

I guess we all knew it was coming but Figmas is finally putting the dev mode behind a $35 paywall. Still angering. Could we maybe switch to Penpot to get our design specs? Even $35 is too much for me…

Ah bummer. This has been in discussion ever since the whole Adobe acquisition event before on whether people will be switching to an alternative like Penpot. We might very well do! We would probably migrate our designs over as a whole for Penpot (or something else) if we decide to do this.

We certainly want to reduce friction students accessing the designs so this is an important point. We’ll keep this noted and see how we can navigate this change with the designs.
