This is an IDF Local Group meet-up

  • Attendance is free
  • You do not have to be a member of the IDF to attend

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 Coffee and UX talk in Bella Vista held on Feb 22, 2019. Feel free to ask questions about the place, date and time, agenda of the meeting, or anything else.

Where exactly in the hotel are you lo

Hi Guys,

I'm interested in a show of hands as to how many people in this group work around the hills area?

How many work in the general vicinity of the CBD?

The reason I ask is that a lunch time coffee catch up for someone working in the city is unworkable for me and I suspect others.

I would have thought that many of the consultancies, organisations and design houses that employ those of us with the sort of skills sets that would join IDF would work in locations in or near the CBD.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

I guess that is a long winded way of saying I won't be coming despite my wish to meet many of you fine people.

How do I go about getting the imprimatur to set up a session for others facing this dilemma.


Hi Rob, glad you asked. I'm living and working in Hills. I used to work in the city and have created a UX community there. Now it is hard to travel to the city for the meetups. What is the best way to catch up? Skype, zoom etc. or work from home if that is an opinion?

Hi, I live in the area but work in the city so wouldn’t be able to attend the lunch catch up! But love the idea of having something in this area.. weekend catchups would work really well!!

Used to work near the city, recently took a role in Bella Vista and am trying to build community in Hills district. We can do it on the weekends or evenings?.

Sounds great Prabin!

Hi Rob,

Would be good to have something in the CBD. I also live in the hills area but will not be able to make it to Bella Vista on a friday noon.

Hi Srinivas, there are heaps of meetups in city, nothing in hills area.

Hi Rob,

Thanks for raising this. I work in the city myself somewhere around Townhall station. Each time I want to join a meetup, It's either far from me to make it or the the timing is an issue.
Since there's no tagging option available here I hope you see this sometime soon.
This is my email in case you need it.


We can move this to the weekend event or evening session?
