We gather at 7pm and supply ourselves with drinks. We welcome our first-time visitors and do a round of introduction. We plan tonight's meetup topics. Geeks like myself prepare a talk with slides, and pre-announce it on https://UXvienna.at/ongoing/. Others improvise and shout out a subject they want to discuss. Both ways are fine. More at https://UXvienna.at/join/#minitalk We try to make a more or less strict agenda with ~3 topics — each time-boxed with 30 minutes. So we will be done with the topics around 9pm and have some more casual talks and in-depth-discussions afterwards. We do that in order to keep some focus on content and that nobody is bored with a topic she's not interested in. Collaboratively we document each UX Vienna Evening Meetup at https://UXvienna.at/ongoing/. Check out to see what kept us busy and what you might have missed so far. We do speak English. UX Vienna Evening Meetups are on the 2nd tuesday of every month — 12 times a year. UX Vienna announcements are available at https://meetup.com/UXvienna. In addition you can follow us on https://UXvienna.at and https://twitter.com/UXvienna. We are looking forward to seeing you!
Our next book, 'Ruined by Design' by Mike Monteiro, has been requested by our book club members several times, and it seems the perfect book for the last Meetup of 2020. Here's what the author says about it: "This book is about how our responsibility to society outweighs everything else we do. It’s about how we need to work ethically, responsibly, and with care. It contains examples of how the current environment is designed so that a few select people can succeed in the short-term while screwing many people in the long terms. It’s not pretty." It may not be pretty, but it certainly is a great read. See for yourself in this sample chapter: https://www.ruinedby.design/sample-chapter As always, it isn't obligatory to read the book to participate - we aim to provide enough information for everyone to be able to join the discussion. The book club will be held online via Zoom and accompanied by a hands-on Miro board. Book club language is English. Looking forward to seeing you! Your hosts Sabine Ballata & Sarah Hiebl
