Config is the annual global design conference by Figma, and in 2021 it was held completely virtually.
Figma has demonstrated to be more than a design tool, it’s all about scalability and efficient collaboration. Config 2021 was a great opportunity to launch several new features on Figma that will help enlarge its product spectrum.
The Config 2021 agenda spans two days was made up of keynotes and breakout sessions, with both days having opening and closing keynotes. Did you miss the whole event or just a talk? Don’t worry, all talks were recorded and will be shared out a month after.
