  • Posted to Ask DN: Do you participate in local design meetups? How did it go?, Aug 01, 2014

    I co-organize http://www.meetup.com/TorontoUX/. We are on our 4th monthly installment so far. I think for us one of the most important things was to bring back the community aspect. We didn't want this to be another Dribbble meetup that seemed misguided and without purpose (at least where I live).

    We wanted to talk in focus groups, develop a feeling of community, and essentially learn as much as we can from each other. On our last Meetup, we invited real companies with UX challenges. We broke ourselves up into small groups, and helped young startups with their design challenges.

    uxchat on Twitter was also born out of this principle of community building. At the end of every Meetup, we have a handful of questions we'd like to ask the global community. This helps in breaking down the silo, and engaging with members near and far away.

    I'd love to hear some comments on this as I am in the same boat.

    I believe that story! It's a mean sport at times.

    Absolutely, Kuto! Making a decision like that means that one needs to push hard to the very last day. Employers will really appreciate that. I am glad you want to row. Best (and worst hah) sport ever. Saw a deer the other day during my morning row. She was following me, I think she wanted to play a game of tag. Let me know if you're looking for rowing blogs, training programs, etc. I'd be happy to help.

    Oh neat! I wasn't aware that Bohemian Coding had released a new fonts app after Fontcase.
