This is an IDF Local Group meet-up

  • Attendance is free

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 Birmingham, let's meet up and network over coffee! Share UX design insights and resources, discuss UX problems you are facing now, or just chat about anything else. It's going to be an informal, cozy meet-up with fellow designers!

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

Meet-up discussion

Hi all!

Mo and I had an inaugural meet up at lunchtime last week in Birmingham. I think we both got a lot out of it, it was great to learn about her experiences and to share some stories!

We thought about having another in a couple of weeks @ Java Lounge just off Victoria Square.

We'd both love to meet some new UX folk, so please feel free to come along if you can!

Please use this discussion thread to discuss IDF Birmingham City Meetup held on Nov 21, 2017. Feel free to ask questions about the place, date and time, agenda of the meeting, or anything else.



I'll be coming. Looking forward to meeting you

hi guys! It would be great to know more people in the field! Great initiative. See you :)

Unfortunately I won't be able to attend tomorrow but hope future sessions will take place as I would be very interested in meeting anyone involved in UX.

I'm hoping we can get something going here, David, so please stay in touch on here :) Cheers Rob

Hey Jessica, Balandino (and Preyesh),

Looking forward to meeting today, unfortunately Mo is unwell today, but I'll be at Java Lounge for 12.30pm - I'll try to get a table.

I'll try to look as much like my profile pic as possible, and be as visible as I can, so will look out for you!

See you at 12.30 :)


Hello all,

Unfortunately, I've caught a bug of sorts and won't be able to make it today. I would love to attend in the future though.

If you feel like networking anyway, I am happy to provide my details :)

Sorry yr not going to make it today, Preyesh, look forward to seeing you at a later date (when yr feeling better!) Cheers, Rob

Hi guys.. I'm very sorry I cannot make it either... Stuck at home with my PhD thesis.... :( Is anybody around next week?

Sorry to miss you Balandino, hope you can make the 5th Dec?

Hi all, so Jess and I met today. We had a great chat about our respective experiences as Teams of One and what we might do in this meetup in the future.

I've updated the date for two weeks time - Tue 5 December, same time - 12.30pm, same place - Java Lounge - so hope some or all of you can make it - see you there!

That's great! I'll stick it to my calendar now. Thanks!

Hey all, does anyone have an issue with making the next meet up on Monday 4th? Mo can only make that day and would love to meet as many folk as possible...let me know, otherwise I'll amend the date. Cheers! Rob
