• Living in Information: Responsible Design for Digital Places
    For our next meeting we will be discussing ‘Living in Information: Responsible Design for Digital Places’ by Jorge Arango. Rosenfeld Media has offered us a generous discount code. Use uxbooknyc18au30 for 30% off the book! Pick up your copy at https://rosenfeldmedia.com/books/living-in-information/ About the book: "Websites and apps are places where critical parts of our lives happen. We shop, bank, learn, gossip, and select our leaders there. But many of these places weren’t intended to support these activities. Instead, they’re designed to capture your attention and sell it to the highest bidder. Living in Information draws upon architecture as a way to design information environments that serve our humanity." About Rosenfeld Media: Rosenfeld Media provides deep user experience design expertise in the formats you need. About Clover: Clover builds smart, customized point of sale systems that make running your business easier. We hope to hold the discussion outside on Clover's roof deck! Weather permitting.

  • Sense & Respond
    For our next meeting we will be discussing Sense & Respond, How Successful Organizations Listen to Customers and Create New Products Continuously by Jeff Gothelf and Josh Seiden. Learn more about the book and pick up a copy at http://senseandrespond.co/ About the book: Digital technology is changing everything about business today. Why? Because it gives organizations the ability to build continuous two-way communication into every customer touch point. Most leaders and project teams think this is simply the evolution of “IT”—leaving business management unchanged. This is not true. As this technology becomes embedded in literally every phase and process of our businesses, we need new organizational structures and management practices capable of leveraging these new capabilities. Sense & Respond, How Successful Organizations Listen to Customers and Create New Products Continuously, from Harvard Business Press, describes the tools, techniques, and practices that managers need to thrive in this new world. Jeff Gothelf and Josh Seiden have been working with leading organizations that are inventing the tactics to respond to this sea change. In this book, they bring these revolutionary tactics to you. There's no other book out there addressing this and helping leaders understand what to do. About Jeff and Josh: Jeff and Josh were already experienced digital product design leaders when they met in 2008. Their friendship led to a business partnership and eventually, to Sense and Respond, their second book together. Their first book, "Lean UX: Applying Lean Principles to Improve User Experience," is widely regarded as one of the most important User Experience books in recent years. Together, Jeff and Josh have spent years working with digital product teams and the companies that support them. They've helped teams launch digital businesses, and trained individuals, teams, and leaders around the world, and are excited to share what they've learned with you. Hope to see you there!

  • August Meetup: Design For Real Life
    For the August meeting we will be discussing ‘Design For Real Life’ by Eric A. Meyer and Sara Wachter-Boettcher. A Book Apart has offered us a generous discount code. Use UXNYC816 for 10% off the book! Pick up your copy at https://abookapart.com/products/design-for-real-life (discount code is limited to 50 uses) About the book: "You can’t always predict who will use your products, or what emotional state they’ll be in when they do. But by identifying stress cases and designing with compassion, you’ll create experiences that support more of your users, more of the time. Join Sara Wachter-Boettcher and Eric Meyer as they turn examples from more than a dozen sites and services into a set of principles you can apply right now. Whether you’re a designer, developer, content strategist, or anyone who creates user experiences, you’ll gain the practical knowledge to test where your designs might fail (before you ship!), vet new features or interactions against more realistic scenarios, and build a business case for making decisions through a lens of kindness. You can’t know every user, but you can develop inclusive practices that support a wider range of people. This book will show you how." About A Book Apart: Web design is about multi-disciplinary mastery and laser focus, and that’s the thinking behind our brief books for people who make websites. We cover the emerging and essential topics in web design and development with style, clarity, and, above all, brevity — because working designer-developers can’t afford to waste time. We hope to hold the discussion outside on Perka’s roof deck! Weather permitting. Fingers crossed. Hope to see you there! Thanks, UX Book Club NYC Organizers
