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 Oklahoma UX Designers,

The Dallas Big Design Conference is coming up in September.

It is a great opportunity to see some awesome speakers and make some new connections.

You also have the opportunity to score some side jobs (for those of you looking for them) or even land your first UX gig (if you don't have one yet). However, you'll need a portfolio for that.

IDF Dallas will be there as well which means you can meet some other members of the IDF.

I went last year and met Alan Cooper from Cooper Design.

I highly recommend that you go.

They already have the keynote speakers selected, but the full speaker roster will be fleshed out in the end of August. Adobe also makes a strong appearance.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Meet-up discussion

Hi all! Please use this discussion thread to discuss IDF OKC at the Dallas Big Design Conference held on Sep 20, 2018. Feel free to ask questions about the place, date and time, agenda of the meeting, or anything else.

Just a couple of things about the event:

  1. The first day is a number of workshops. The workshops are intense sessions where you get to work through the topic at hand. I went to a 9 - 5 session on conducting user interviews.
  2. Recruiters from Creative Circle and Tag Agency are there. This is an excellent time to score side gigs. If you need help creating your portfolio for that, please let me know.
  3. There are meetups afterwards, and last year they had a live recording of a UX podcast at the event.
Please log in or join us to post comments in the discussion.
