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.

IDF GTA / Mississauga / Hamilton / KW Monthly MeetUp

Designing for Performance: The Fast X and the Furious U

Performant Web Retrospective

1. The Fast and the Furious (2001)

2. Fast 2 Furious (2003)

3. The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)

4. Fast & Furious (2009)

5. Fast Five (2011)

6. Fast & Furious 6 (2013)

7. Furious 7 (2015)

8. The Fate of the Furious (2017)

9. Future

This will be 9 part presentation based on the timeline of a series of action films that is also an excellent time span to reflect on UX as the “hot new thing” and what made many companies think “we need some of that" with focus on what makes performant design fast, simple, accessible, universal, and essential part of good user experience.

Each session will be 20-30 minutes long, reflect on that time period, and we can hopefully make it a collaborative effort. I will start the retrospective at the first regional meetup with example session and invite others to participate. I also encourage others to join and share your own experiences, connect and help create a forum for all interaction design members, professionals and students alike to meet and greet.

I reached out to few members on Linkedin and if there is anyone interested in doing presentation, workshop, podcast, wish to showcase your product or company, and have any other ideas let me know.

Looking forward to seeing you on April 16.

Wow, this looks awesome.

I'm a new student and won't have much to contribute, but I can't wait to be in the room for this discussion.

Hi, I am one of the newest members to join the community. My name is Akinmade; pronounced 'Her-kin-mar-day". Looking forward to meet all the attendants on Tuesday.
