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.

Welcome to new IxDADublin local leader - Filip Szymczak

An announcement for the new year - Filip Szymczak is a new local leader for IxDA Dublin.  I hope you will all show your support to him in taking on this new role in what will be a major year for IxDA Dublin.

Filip has played a key role in organising Defuse 2011 & Defuse 2010 as well as being our best supporter of monthly events so we should have an interesting calendar of events happening this year.  We're kicking off with the January meet-up which will be on Wed 18th Jan 6:30pm in The Gingerman.  Hope you can come along to wish Filip well that night.

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.
