Cosy UX Meet Up in Barcelona

Hi!

I'm Mel, a UX Researcher who is currently working at an innovation consultancy company. After having trained as an anthropologist at the University of Chicago and explored 8 countries in 4 continents, I found myself in Barcelona. Call it love, or poetic justice, I made Catalonia my home during the last 2 years.

My next professional goal, the challenge I set for myself, is working for a tech company, ideally an app that revolutionizes users’ lives in a humble but consistently exceptional way.

What about you? What brought you to IDF? What do you want to do next? What is your passion? I hope a few of us can attend to an informal get together in Barcelona held on Sep 15, 2019 around 15h.

Feel free to ask questions about the place, date and time, agenda of the meeting, or anything else.

Thanks!

Mel

Hello Mel,

Lovely story! I'm really interested in innovation as well and love to meet up.

I encourage anyone who wants to join to attend. Sundays are not a good days for me though. Where do you suggest to meet? Do you have place at your office?

By the way, here's an invitation link to our Slack group. Please join us there too: https://join.slack.com/t/idfbarcelona/shared_invit...

Hi everyone,

Nice to e-meet you, my name is Anfisa, I started my UX&UI adventure last year and I am looking for every opportunity to become a better specialist :)

I would be very happy to hang out with you, exchange our experience, knowledge and good vibes! Please keep me posted what day you decide to make it, hope I won't have last minute plan changes this weekend :)


Anfisa

I'm in! ;-) See you there.

Hola Esther, I just joined the Slack group...looking forward to meeting everyone one day soon.

I'm in! ;-) See you there.

Hi Mel ...! Would have been great to meet fellow IDF members so soon but unfortunately that is my daughter's birthday and I will be in Dublin....next one!

Hi everyone!!! Thanks for the comments :)

1. To answer Esther´s questions, I suggested this place because I have participated in other events there and they all went smoothly. It is in a safe and tranquil area, there is enough space, and prices are OK.

Please reach out to me if you have another place in mind or any recommendations.

2. I hear that its Ray´s daughter´s birthday and Sundays are not great for Esther. Would Saturday, 14th of September potentially work better for some of you? In my case, Monday to Thursdays are highly unlikely because of long hours. Friday from 18h is doable. Weekends are always more flexible. What about you?

Looking forward to meeting you soon and thanks,


Mel


Hello everyone! Hope you had a great weekend :)

- I understand that all those who confirm to come are happy with Buenas Migas (Carrer del Bon Pastor 3 Barcelona) this Sunday (September 15th) around 16h. If you want to get more info etc please react out to me.

- I will get to the venue a bit earlier with printouts of IDF for our table so that you have no problem finding out. Either way, I will be attentive to my emails (meltemnaz@gmail.com). If for whatever reason you're having problems finding us, let me know!

Thanks and looking forward to meeting you soon!

Hi Anfisa, thanks for signing up!

Just wanted to confirm for the final time that we settled to meet tomorrow at 16h. Please come to Buenas Migas (Carrer del Bon Pastor 3 Barcelona) :)

Im in! See you a little later :)

Hi all,

Big thanks to Mel for setting this up!

I've been in Barcelona for 2+ years (3 in November) and work in B2B sales and marketing. I came across the Interaction Design platform and am keen to diversify my skillset and eventually freelance.

On my way to meet you all right now. See you soon
