NOTE: If you need to call the venue (the Macquarium Charlotte office/loft) please call[masked]-2146.
Our next UX Book Club meeting will be about "Undercover UX" by Cennydd Bowles & James Box.
The Book: The book has its own site at
UndercoverUX.com; and it's available on
Amazon for a nearly for a 34% discount.
Time: Note we're starting this book club meeting at
6:30PM -- a little earlier than last time -- in order to accommodate the author who is in the UK, where it's 5 hours later. We will socialize until 7, when we'll visit with Cennydd via Skype for a bit, then let him get to sleep as we continue our discussion.
Location: We will be meeting at Macquarium's Charlotte office/loft in NoDa. It's a bit tricky to find in the dark, so be sure to look at the map we posted explaining how you walk all the way back at Highland Mill lofts. (It's about 80% residential 20% commercial space.)
Food: You may want to eat dinner beforehand, but we do plan to have some yummy hors d'oeuvres and stuff to drink.
What's a UX Book Club? Simple: just an informal group that uses books related to user-experience design as an excuse to get together now and then to learn, discuss and socialize.
Do I need to have read the whole book? Nope. We're all very busy people and sometimes don't have time to finish the book. Just come with an interest in the book and its topic, and a willingness to learn new stuff.
Are there other UX Book Clubs? Yes! For more information on UX Book Clubs check out the original wiki site:

**Who is running this particular club? The Charlotte UX Book Club is a side project of Macquarium, a UX consultancy headquartered in Atlanta, with a growing outpost in Charlotte. It's a separate but complementary effort to the Charlotte UX Meetup.
