This is an IDF Local Group meet-up

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 all, I am new to the group and wanted to say hello, and thought I'd plunge in and try to make a meet-up. I have followed the Interaction Design blog for years and always found it a valuable resource, and finally joined.

2017 held some challenges for many, it was a huge year of highs, lows and interesting experiences. I'm eager to meet some more local designers, share experiences and insights from 2017. What projects were you most proud of this past year? What do you hope to accomplish in 2018?

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

Meet-up discussion

Hi all! Please use this discussion thread to discuss New ideas for a new year held on Feb 22, 2018. Feel free to ask questions about the place, date and time, agenda of the meeting, or anything else.

Hello everyone! For anyone interested in attending when/ where would be a convenient time?

I tentatively set the meet-up for a Thursday (Feb 22) because Thursdays seem to be a nice evening for social activities. I work in Dowtown SF, I can pick somewhere around there, but I am also open to suggestions!

Hi! I am in Las Vegas and tried to do an 'online hangout' today but nobody showed up :( So it looks like your group has a lot more participating members and I joined it. Could we do some sort of virtual meeting? I do this when I co-lead virtual book studies for Boston PHP Group meetup. We pick a book and do a chapter a week and post, but that's on the website format. I am not sure if this site has this sort of capability, to host a virtual meeting at a certain time. Anyway, thought I'd introduce myself--please see, that's my online portfolio, which is not exactly UX/UI-centered but I've been in web design and dev since 2000 and of course have used a lot of the principles. Following Don Norman, Jakob Nielsen, etc. I joined IDF because it was a lot more economical (considering that I'm job-seeking) than trying to get a Micromaster's in UX/UI from and I was hoping to network with other web professionals, and improve my skillset in this field through training on this website, also maybe get a certificate. So contact me to chat any time--I'm currently looking for work so I mostly just study and mail out resumes all day.



Hello all, I'm in southbay and can meet in downtown SF. Looking forward to it. Thanks!
