This is an IDF Local Group meet-up
- 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.
Let’s meet to discuss growing in UX, finding opportunities, building careers, portfolios and more!
What & where:
This will be a relaxed round-table event at Space4.tech coworking space, just next to Finsbury Park tube station (that’s on the Victoria line, a couple of stops north from Kings Cross). There's a map on their website.We will also minute the event on the IDF London Slack (direct link to the Slack channel for the event is here). Afterwards we can decamp to the nearby WB Yeats pub too.
A pretty relaxed and constructive round-table in the Space4 big room, followed by drinks. :) We'll have a projector and a laptop so we can look at things and collaborate on screen too.
I’ll put together a loose agenda, and to help our discussions it would be great if some people could please offer to speak for a minutes on any career / finding-work related topic. Maybe you'd like to speak about a great development opportunity you’ve done and can recommend to others. Or what has / hasn’t worked for you in building your career. Or a big challenge that you’re facing in your career development.
I’ll offer something for the mix: I can talk about our company Outlandish, which is a worker-owned tech co-operative. It was formed by freelance designers and developers who came together to start a company and build a better way of working. I can explain how we all collaborate to find work, organise ourselves and make a living!
If you have an idea for something you’d like to talk about please do put it in the comments or in the Slack channel and let's add it to the evening's plan :)
Hope to see you there!
