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

Hi UX designers/Design Thinkers in Houston! Let's meet and design solutions for City of Houston.

Its a Design Thinking/UX hackathon, a free event happening for two days Feb 22nd and Feb 23rd. City of Houston will share a challenge and we all would have an opportunity to solve it using design thinking process.

For two days Houstonians will come together to understand problem context, do quick descriptive research, brainstorm to generate ideas, probably designing MVPs or working prototypes. City experts would be available to share the understanding of internal city processes and participants would get a chance to learn tools, techniques and best practices of Creative problem solving, Service Design, User Experience, and Design Thinking. The ideas developed during these days would be evaluated and hopefully adopted to put in use throughout our wonderful, international city.

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