IxDA Gainesville (FL)
Message to the group
Welcome to the Gainesville IxDA Local Chapter!
This group exists to help support the user experience and interaction design communities around the Gainesville and North-Central Florida areas. We welcome members from Ocala, Lake City and other surrounding areas in addition to Gainesville and Alachua County.
Practitioners and students are welcome, as well as those interested in learning more about UX or IxD.
IMPORTANT: Where to find all the IxDA Gainesville discussion and happenings
IxDA Gainesville has two online homes: this space on the IxDA site, as well as a Facebook group. We will be posting any major events and announcements here, but our day to day discussion will take place at http://www.facebook.com/groups/IxDA.Gainesville.
We are really looking for additional help in the following ways:
- Join the group and spread the word! Please join our Facebook group and invite any of your friends/colleagues that are both located in the North Central Florida/Gainesville area and are either students pursuing a job in UX/UI design or current practitioners of UX/UI design.
- Join the group and volunteer to help out!! We would love to have volunteers, guest speakers, and idea people to help us grow this group and create some great local events. I created this group, but it is not “My” group. It is “our” group. If you would like to be more than just an attendee at events or member of the virtual group, please contact me directly through the facebook group.
- Sponsor our group!!! If you are affiliated with a business that has a vested interest in growing local UX/UI Design talent in our area, we need a sponsor. By being a sponsor, we will give your company prominent exposure at our meetings and on our facebook page for you to promote your open positions and your company’s services. The two main things we are after are a place to meet (typically from 6-8 PM one weekday/month) and some funding for snacks, drinks, and supplies for monthly meetings.
