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

Is your UI intuitive? How exactly do you know? Software teams are notoriously poor at evaluating their own product's usability. While user-based testing is a great way to get meaningful usability data, such tests take a lot of time and effort to setup and perform, and are often performed late in the process if at all. Hardly agile! Wouldn’t you like your team to be able to find many usability problems on its own, early in the process, in about an hour?

Enter scored streamlined cognitive walkthroughs, which help your team determine if task flows are intuitive by asking a few questions at each step and scoring the answers against criteria that measure intuitiveness. Unlike traditional walkthroughs, this process doesn’t assume that users will stay on the “happy path,” resulting in a more realistic and meaningful assessment.
