Dan Saffer spoke at UX Australia 2013 regarding Microinteractions and his new book. I think this would be a great one to start off with as everyone may not have read it already.
• Get on Amazon
• Add it to your Goodreads Book List
It’s the little things that turn a good digital product into a great one. With this practical book, you’ll learn how to design effective microinteractions: the small details that exist inside and around features. How can users change a setting? How do they turn on mute, or know they have a new email message?
I spoke to Leland Tea, they are able to accommodate our future meetups (capped at 12 people) but not this meetup. I phoned around, discovered Celtic Coffee and they are happy to take us tomorrow. There will be onlyone staff member working so please keep that in mind and we'll try to be as accommodating as possible. This cafe uses Square so don't worry about bringing cash.
Due to the size of this meetup, it's very likely we will have to split up into two or more subgroups, if you're interested in being a moderator for a group please let me know.
What to bring
Your book - physical or digital for reference and any notes you have.
Suggestion: If you don't have any notes maybe flip through your book and find a couple things you either felt were really awesome or really disagreed with.
Please keep in mind
This meetup is not a networking or self promotion tool. There are many other awesome meetups that focus on that, this group is for people that love any excuse to talk about UX and design for fun.
See you all tomorrow!
