Announcements

March 24, 2009

Upcoming book for April, 2009: Book: Subject to Change: Creating Great Products & Services for an Uncertain World from Adaptive Path (http://tinyurl.com/cgzffc)

RUX is pleased to announce a new initiative, the RUX Book Club!

The idea: As a group, we pick books about user experience, design, information architecture, Web architecture, information design and more — we read the books – then we meet and talk about them.

RUX Book Club is scheduled for every 3 months, beginning in April, 2009. Mark your calendars for the following Wednesdays in 2009-2010:

  • April 29, 2009
  • July 29, 2009
  • October 28, 2009
  • January 27, 2010

Mission

Welcome to Richmond User Experience. We are a group of information architects, librarians, web developers, usability experts, user experience designers, and other like-minded people from the Richmond/Charlottesville area.

Meetings are held the last Wednesday of the month at various locations around the Richmond area. Our events are designed to facilitate communication and collaboration among UX practitioners in a relaxed and informal setting. Meetings are free and open to all levels of experience. Students are welcome.

Whether you’re a seasoned user experience professional or a newbie, please join us for stimulating conversation!

Book Club Format

From uxbookclub.org

A UX (User Experience) Book Club is a get-together in which people interested in the area of user experience come to discuss a book relevant to the discipline.

A UX Book Club would operate as follows:

  • Everyone who attends should try and read the nominated book (you won't be barred from entry, but it helps everyone get more out of the night);
  • Everyone needs to jot down and bring along: 2 things in the book that really struck a chord; and 1 thing they either hated, disagreed with; or don't understand.
  • The book would be within the practice of user experience, which might include books like Indi Young's Mental Models; Dan Saffer's Design Gestural Interfaces; Todd Zaki Warfel's forthcoming Prototyping; and classics such as The Design of Everyday Things; Don't Make Me Think; The Inmates Are Running the Asylum; etc.
  • The book should not be arduous to read!
  • Next Month's book will be announced at the current meeting.

In keeping with the book-club theme we will meet somewhere like a wine bar or a bookstore. The important thing is that the noise level has to be low, and be able to accommodate a group of 15-30 people.

Books We've Read

We're getting there! See you in April!
