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

Responsive web design is all the rage today. As it should be: responsive design solves a very significant form factor problem in a mobile-first world.

Just one problem: So many responsive websites suck. Badly. Many are just a predictable mix of a fancy header bar; a giant, completely useless hero image—just to make it clear that you must scroll to do anything useful; endlessly long pages with just about everything but what you are looking for; promising links that send you back to the same crap you were just looking at; scrolling, scrolling, scrolling, scrolling; and a useless fat footer to signify your scrolling has finally come to an end. Oh yeah—and a hamburger menu (regardless of need) just to emphasize that it works on your phone too.
