IxDA Dublin

Message to the group

IxDA Dublin was founded in October 2008, with just 8 members, to provide local Interaction Design practitioners and academics with an outlet to come together, share ideas and build community.

Since then we have been meeting on a monthly basis to discuss and present a range of topics relating to Interaction Design.  Membership of our community has reached the 300 mark.

Our monthly events tend to be informal, where a very social group of local designers discuss, present and host workshops around different themes. Topics covered to date include eye tracking, personas, beer storming, conference reviews, sketching workshops and innovation trials.

In November 2011, 2010 and 2009 we produced our most ambitious and successful event to date as part of Irish Design week. DEFUSE: Design For Use, featured 12 thought leaders from the IxD field, each presenting their inspiring ideas in the tricky yet entertaining "Ignite" 5 minute format. The event was free, received rave reviews and placed IxD firmly on the Dublin design map. We recored the 2010 & 2011 events, the videos are on YouTube. 

You are very welcome to join our group. Let us know if you have any questions or comments. We create our own local newsletter, if you would like to join you can do so here.

University College Dublin Study on Evaluating Remote/Virtual Work

Hi,

First, apologies for the slightly spammy nature of this email. I'm a postdoc researcher in the School of Information and Library studies at University College Dublin (UCD). We are conducting research in how virtual or remote work is evaluated in companies. In other words, how do companies and managers treat and value the work that is done non-locally by employees?

UX SketchClub - 27th March

Hi all,

IxDADublin is having a SketchClub evening on Tues 27th March from 6:30pm hosted at iQ Content's offices on Clarendon St.

Do you wish you got more time to just sketch?  Wish you had more time to practice? Want to find new ways to get your ideas and message across? Want to overcome your fear of sketching in public?

We'll be running through a number of exercises to practice, share and collaborate on communicating ideas.  The event is free, very informal and open to everyone, we'd be delighted to have new members along.

Does it worth doing a 7000£ Masters to become a UX designer?

Dear IXDA, 

I have been a member of a few months now, since I have decided that I would like to specialise my career towards UX design after a degree in Multimedia Tech. and Design. 

I have been pondering on what makes a UX designer, how does one call oneself as a HCI specialist or UX designer, there are hardly any specialised degrees on this subject.
