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 discussion

Hi all! Please use this discussion thread to discuss Big Questions For The UX Novice held on Aug 17, 2019. Feel free to ask questions about the place, date and time, agenda of the meeting, or anything else.

Good design stems from a genuinely empathetic directed sense. Many novices in this field over estimate their ability to impact the world through design. Adressing some of the most important questions could be of immense value as this can inform each action that veers students of design in a clearer path.

The reason for this meet up to ask the Big Questions that could help redirect designers already on their path, or guide upcoming designers.

I would delighted to get you thoughts on this. Any suggestions are welcome!


I'm a UX novice and still learning about what I don't know :-) Looking forward to be introduced to the "Big Questions" in UX and design thinking! I do believe that proper questions do keep thinking focused and possible solutions realistic and actionable.



Nice to hear from you Christelle!

Like Einstein, let’s use this time to think deeply about what questions to ask.

Looking forward to having this conversation with you as well.

Warm as from Uganda.

Hello everyone!

Anyone having a big question for ux novices?

Hello fellow Humans, as the day gets closer, I hope you are all well and healthy.

"If you had ten hours to cut a tree, a wise one would sped the first nine hours sharpening the axe."

If you have any questions in regards to this topic, questions you wish were answered when you had just started out, don't hesitate to jot them down somewhere. This meet up is exactly meant to address that.

Kind regards.


Hope you’re stoked

This is going to be an interesting discussion. Something a tad nuanced from what is current.

Hope to see you all! Cheers.
