What are Local Groups?

IDF Local Groups will expand your local career network - whether you are interested in learning new skills, looking for new job opportunities, new clients for your company, or a great new dedicated employee.

An IDF Local Group is a group of people who are just as passionate about design as you are. Each Local Group holds physical meetings and the agenda is to get inspired, discuss, have fun, learn and improve your career. Meetings take place in a relaxed and fun atmosphere at a local cafe, an office building, or an auditorium depending on the agenda for the meeting. For each Local Group there is also an online Local Group so you can stay in touch and help update each other on local events.

Meet-up description

Hello IDF OKC,

I'm holding a small informal meetup in Stillwater on the night of Halloween.

We'll talk about UX design at a local coffee shop, try to onboard some new IDF members, and find out what's going on in the lives of other designers! I will get the details here in the next few days.

* Note: Over the next two months I'll be scheduling small meetups in Tulsa, Lawton, and last but not least OKC. Keep in communication and let's meet up soon!


Meet-up discussion

The first meeting for our group was fun and interesting. I met with a number of coworkers from my company and their friends and family who directly do design related work or are interested in UX design.

We discussed a number of topics that we would be interested in tackling as a big group and some ideas for possible workshops that we could do.

Possible topics include:

* the impact of UX design on productivity
* preventing group think during ideation
* social media interfaces and echo chambers
* overly addictive interfaces
* UX design and safety in physical machines
* poor UX design and how it relates to waste
* fear of change
* the conflict of user needs and business goals in interface design

Let's hope that some of the people I introduced to the IDF decide to join.

As I make my way around I plan on getting more information and ideas from everyone I meet!

Please log in or join us to post comments in the discussion.
