Help Local Groups and Donate Today!

Hi IxDA Membership,

Over the last few years there has been an incredible proliferation of
Local Groups meeting face to face around the world. Currently we have
over 80 groups with new groups starting up monthly. The groups are
started by members who have raised their hand and are willing to
volunteer their time because they feel it’s important to manifest the
online discussion into a face to face meet-up in their area. They do
this with nominal support from IxDA using a disparate range of tools
to help organize their groups and events.

It's time we change this.

I'd like to share with you what some people are saying when they contribute,
as these sentiments should serve as fuel for all of you who devote so much
of your time and energy to your IxDA community.

>Thank you so much for all your hard work - the IxDA has been so instrumental
in my career and educational development...

Seeking iPhone UX Designers

Hello IXDA community,

Has anyone brought an iPhone app to market? Did you take an end-to-
end user-centered design approach (upfront research, iterative
prototyping & all that fun stuff)?

I'm working on an article about user-centered iPhone app design.
Finding a range of real world examples has been a challenge given that
most apps have been designed by developers. If you're interested in
sharing your project with the group, please comment/reply to this
message.
