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

Hello IDF London, it's November and getting cold so let's meet up and network to warm ourselves up! We'll 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! We will be at Barrio Soho.

Meet-up discussion

Hi all! Please use this discussion thread to discuss IDF London November Meet-UP \m/ held on Nov 28, 2017. Feel free to ask questions about the place, date and time, agenda of the meeting, or anything else.

Hi All,

I am fairly new to the UX role, I joined my team March this year. My background isn't UX, however I have settled and adapted to the role quite quick. I love my new role, I have completed one of the IDF courses, I wanted to know if in the meet ups any workshops take place to encourage innovation, and creativeness?

Thank you,


Hi, Sonal,

this particular IDF meet up is an open space for conversations, whereby we share knowledge and engage in discussions about design, UX and other adjacent disciplines. The format is very organic in fact but the opportunity to connect with other people with different backgrounds and experience levels can be invaluable.

I hope to see you there!

Keen to make it along! Shall depend on work on the day but its in the calender :)

Thank you Vilmar, yes definitely would love to make it, however due to work times and as I'm not based in London, may be difficult.


I am new to this group. Just wondering, would I be able to attend if I am a little late on that day? My work will finish at 6pm and by the time I reach Barrio Soho it will be around 7pm.

Excited to meet you all.


Hi Syed,

Its my first IDF meet up too! I wont get there till 7 ish either, I imagine others will bein the same boat. I am just going to rock up and hope for the best.

See all you later.

Hi Ellen,

Was almost about to give up thinking i might miss the main part joining late! Since I won't be alone, looking forward to meet you all.

Thanks for assuring.

Hi Vilmar. Are you going to be in a specific part of the venue or hanging near the bar?

Hello, everyone,

the area booked is on the ground floor. The place is not big so it will be easy to spot us there.

Look forward to seeing you guys later.



Thanks Vilmar - hope to see you later.
It'll be like looking in a funhouse mirror - I'm bald, bearded & bigger ;-)

Haha, sure thing

See you later!

We'll be seating upstairs by the entrance door. Cheers.

Thanks for being a grand host Vilmar - hope to meet up again - all the best everybody! MG

Hello, everyone,

it was great to meet you all last night. I hope you had fun and found the meet-up useful in some way.

In the true spirit of UX practice you can share your ideas and thoughts on how to make meet-ups more utilitarian for you and your particular areas of interest.

Have a great Xmas and New Year, everyone!

Best wishes
