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

Hi IDF San Diego, let's meet up and network over coffee! We've started CappUXcino & Coffee with some wonderful UXers where we share UX insights and resources, discuss UX problems you are facing now, and complete UX research/design-thinking exercises and activities.

With the UX community growing ever so rapidly in San Diego, some gaps have been created. The goal is to minimize, and ultimately, close the gap between very experienced UX professionals and up-and-coming/junior-level UXers. There is room for everyone in our industry. We'd love to have you as part of our growing community. The CappUXcino & Coffee meetup is your opportunity to meet others interested in growing their chops just like you, while learning and growing your skills.

+ Are you new to User Experience and feel intimidated and out-of-place at larger meetups?

+ Do you prefer smaller, more intimate meetups so your voice can be heard?

+ Would you like to be around other new designers like yourself so that you know you're not alone?

+ Are you looking for a mentor to help you grow in the User Experience industry?

+ Do you appreciate a good space with good vibes and good people?

If you have answered yes to any or all of these questions, we would like to see you at this meetup. Come meet some of your other design peers in San Diego!

9 IDF members (and some non-members) are attending:

If you have not purchased your San Diego Redux Interaction 19 tickets, you still have time to get them at the Early Bird price. This price goes up on Sunday. Get your tickets today! See you there.

For those of you who don’t live downtown (in walking distance) or take public transportation to the meetup, sometimes parking may be a bit of an issue. I wanted to share a link to an app I use called ParkWhiz. They offer deeply discounted parking rates at parking structures and even hotels for valet (not just downtown). If you don’t find free street parking close to the venue, there are usually spots you can find via ParkWhiz (within a few blocks) ranging from $3 and up, depending on the time and location. You won’t have to worry about a 2-hour meter feeding. :wink:

If you use this link, I believe you’ll receive $5 credit after your first use. Hopefully this helps.

I am looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday. If you cannot make it, please update your RSVP or leave a message here so I can inform the venue. Additionally, we have a few spots left in case you want to invite a friend. Visit the Eventbrite page to register:
