What are Miro User Groups?

Miro User Groups or MUGs are meetups locally and virtually that are hosted by some amazing Miro users. At these events you’ll be able to meet fellow Miro users to network, share ideas and best practices and collaborate to create the next big thing.

We’ll have great conversations, food, and drinks as well as exclusive swag that you’ll only find at in-person MUGs!

We’re starting in Austin TX, San Francisco, CA, and Amsterdam (as well as our Virtual Events…V-MUGs for the win!) but we will be expanding to a city near you! We’re taking over the GLOBE!

So join your fellow Miro Pioneers and find a MUG near you by going to events.miro.com! We'll be adding new events every month.

Bonjour à vous tous! @Guillaume Paque 

Sans savoir que vous existiez, j’ai proposez la création d’un groupe en Français justement pour discuter de ces enjeux et de ces besoins. 
Je vous laisse le lien juste ici :  https://community.miro.com/groups/french-language-101

Pour le moment, il n’y a pas de sujets spécifiques ou de besoins spécifiques qui ont émergés puisque nous sommes encore au tout début de ce groupe. Toutefois, je sens qu’il y a vraiment un besoin pour que l’outil puisse être utilisé en français. 

Ce serait vraiment génial que vous puissiez venir partager votre expérience, vos besoins et que vous puissiez vous joindre à nous pour discuter de Miro en français :)

Bonne journée à tous! 

Véronique

If a Miro User Group is called MUG, does that make us all… Muggles? 😁

😅 From this description in Wikipedia : A muggles :  is a person who lacks any sort of magical ability and was not born in a magical family. I do not feel like a muggle 😅😆 I think we need to have some magical wisdom to work with Miro, Miro is more like the magic wand but we have to know all the secrets and the wisdom to use it.  

Also wikipedia : Generally speaking, it is used by members of a group to describe those outside the group, comparable to civilian as used by military personnel. 

So.. @Henrik Ståhl from my understanding, First when I saw Mug I really thought about coffee mugs /  teamates cheerings up with coffee !! 😎🤓😏🤠
Diversify, funky and bieautifful mugs with different style and shapes on a display shelfs ☕️.

@Véronique Carbonneau Haha sorry, I was just trying to be funny. 😂 I like the notion of team mates cheering each other up with coffee though! A huge part of Swedish culture is actually about this thing we call “fika”. It’s basically just a break from whatever we’re currently doing for like 10-15 minutes, when we drink coffee or tea, have a snack and talk. We try to squeeze in a “fika” whenever we can, typically 2-3 times per day. ☕🇸🇪

@Henrik Ståhl I love the term fika! 

We’ve mostly retired the term MUG (or muggle) at Miro (this is simply an older thread!)

@Véronique Carbonneau @Colleen Curtis Fika is one of the best things Sweden has ever contributed to the world! We should definitely establish some sort of Miro Fika Session. I might just create a “fika board” and invite the whole community. 😄

If you want to learn more about fika:

https://www.swedishfood.com/fika

Fika is a concept, a state of mind, an attitude and an important part of Swedish culture. 

Almost sounds like Agile, doesn’t it? 😆

Fika cannot be experienced at your desk by yourself. That would just be taking coffee and cake.

Fika can be a verb. Swedes will say to each other, "Let's go and fika!" or "You and I fika together so well".

And most importantly:

Wherever you live, give fika a try in your daily schedule. You can never be too busy for fika!

@Henrik Ståhl let's bring that idea into life and create it in the Miro Hero team! 

 I would collaborate with you on it to update it and to give us some Fika vibe 💕

We could also create a place for smalls on going board game created by @Said Saddouk.

@Véronique Carbonneau @Colleen Curtis @Said Saddouk Aaaaand the draft is done! ☕

 

I’ve only added one “Fika Game” so far. Let’s add more together! 😊
