February Meetup #1: Overview of Starting to Learn About UX

For the discussion topic for this week's meeting, I'll be giving an overview on some learning resources, videos, tutorials and other online materials for learning about UX... User Experience design. This is the world of design that goes beyond what you lay out onto a page, or fill up a webpage with. This is about how people interact with multimedia, apps, interactive interfaces, software, and yes websites to find, use and do what they need.


One caveat: I'm not a UX expert. So I'll be presenting this from the standpoint of someone else like you, who is wanting to start the process of learning about it. With that in mind, I welcome anyone who wants to bring examples (like books) or links to online materials on learning UX to share with us.

    This looks great! I've been learning about UX Design for a while. There's so much to learn and finding a job (without experience) seems almost impossible...

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
