What are Local Groups?
Local Groups will expand your career network—whether you are interested in learning new skills, finding job opportunities or looking for a new employee.
A Local Group is a group of people who, like you, are passionate about design. Local Groups organize meetings to get inspired, have fun and learn from one another.

Meet-Up Details

Hi IxDF Tempe, let’s meet up and network over coffee! I’m new to the field so I would love the chance to gain any insights on getting that crucial first job. Any advice on projects for portfolio and any definite things to avoid doing or saying in an interview. Switching careers at 46 is scary but so very exciting. Maybe we will make a friend connection as well?! If anyone is interested just let me know and we can find a good location that’s close for all of us.

Meet-Up Discussion

Hi all! Please use this discussion thread to discuss Meet and greet with coffee held on May 28, 2022. Feel free to ask questions about the place, date and time, agenda of the meeting, or anything else.

Hi All! I have been looking forward to meeting fellow UXers since moving to AZ from NYC in 2020! Excited to talk about anything and everything in between. I live in North Scottsdale, in Paradise Valley. Anywhere in northern Tempe would be ideal for me!

This is right by the Salt River so hopefully we will catch a glimpse of its beauty!

Amber, running 15min behind but I’ll be there!

Hey Bartek. What’s your availability like next Thursday sept 1 for a happy hour?

Hello everyone! I’m pretty new in the UX world and would love to meet up anywhere in the valley. I was beginning to feel like there was not a lot of UX groups in AZ!

Networking can be such a great thing. I’m branching out here as a newish resident. Glad you can come!

Hey mark. What’s your availability like next Thursday sept 1 for a happy hour?

SO glad we have a nice group coming! There’s room for more so come meet up and just have a good conversation with us.

I’m hoping Jenn Wittingham and or Taylor Bras can make it too….;)

Hi Amber. Taylor and I are both out of town for the holiday. We will see everyone at future events!

The meet and greet was a smashing success!! I’m so glad I made the meet up and I’m awfully grateful people showed up. Everyone had great insights to share and I made (what I hope they agree with) some new friends. I learned that a bootcamp is an acceptable way to learn a career and to make sure you tie in past experience from your other jobs into your new chosen career because skills transfer even when titles don’t. I learned that any effort you put into your Portfolio will be returned to you by your future employer because they want to SEE what you can do, but you also need to be able to speak about your thought process clearly and intelligently. If you can demonstrate that you have basic knowledge, passion, and work ethic, then you have major potential as an employee. Don’t be afraid to apply for junior roles. Apprenticeships are harder to come by so go for a junior role if you don’t see apprenticeships within any company. Remember that you ARE smart and likeable and gosh darn it you deserve to be happy and fulfilled by your career! Thanks again to all who came and I’ll text you all soon!

Hi everyone! Amber so great to hear the meetup was a success! Taylor and myself are both out of town for the holiday but will be sure to be there at future events!

Members might be bringing their non-member friends to a Local Group meet-up (and you’re welcome to do the same), but their non-member friends will not be shown as “attending” because this feature is only available to members.

P.S.: Note that the number of attendees is not an indication of its value! Small meet-ups work perfectly, and can facilitate deeper, more fruitful conversations.
