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.

24 The Web needs UX help

Hey guys, 

A friend of mine Stewart Curry is running a great initiative to build websites for charities at a 24 hour event. I believe they're currently stuck for User Experience designer (I'd wager that UX will end up including Project Manager here)

Anyways, it's a great event to use your skills for good, so, have a look at http://24theweb.com/  if you're interested.

interaction design projects for entertainment

Hi everybody,

have you ever design and implement some project just for entertainment, maybe using physical computing or something not relate to the web?

I'm curious to see some project (maybe some video on you tube or some slide on slideshare and so on...)

Cheers :)

Welcome to our new home.

Hi All,

I just wanted to say a quick high to all of our members as we transfer over sites.  The old site have a very quite forum, and was mainly used for posting events.  So to get the ball started what is everyone working on.

I'm currently working on a exercise program for retires, comparing a feedback and no feedback group.  We are using heart rate, and gyros to measure peoples performance. 

So, What are you up to?
