Edinburgh UX book club

!!! Update !!!

Despite running for over a year, UX Bookclub Edinburgh has struggled to get a member base, so it's with a heavy heart that the Bookclub is no more. UX Bookclub Glasgow has been going great guns and you can find details via http://uxbookclub.org/doku.php?id=glasgow

If you think it's worth giving UX Bookclub another chance or would like to take over and give it a shot yourself, contact me at rmsackett AT gmail DOT com.

How it works

Read the nominated book, jot down a couple of things that struck a chord (things you liked / disliked or agreed disagreed with) and be prepared to suggest and/or vote on the book to be read, then discussed at the next Bookclub.

If you haven't read the book don't worry, you can still come along and join the the discussion and give your opinions about what we should be reading next.

The order of things:

  • Welcome and introductions
  • Opinion on the book
  • General UX chat, as time allows

Is this for you?

Edinburgh UX book club meets every other month (or so) to discuss a book that we've chosen to read together. We are a varied bunch, but all interested in learning more about User Experience.

Everyone is welcome.

Interested?
