This event is - again - remote: Join us on Zoom under this link: https://zoom.us/j/93088289497 ***Special announcement: One of the authors, Trine Falbe, will join us for Q&A!*** In May, we are going to talk about Ethical Design - more precisely, we will discuss 'The Ethical Design Handbook' by Trine Falbe, Martin Michael Frederiksen and Kim Andersen. This book promises to be a hands-on guide book for designers to help tackle all the pressing issues around ethics, data, avoiding dark patterns and making the right decisions while still delivering business value. So this should be the perfect companion to our last book in April - from philosophy to practise The book's been published by Smashing Magazine (https://www.smashingmagazine.com/) - if you don't know them yet, do make sure to check it out. You can buy the book here: https://ethicaldesignhandbook.com/ There's also a free pdf excerpt and an Ethical Design Scorecard to download. As always, don't worry if you haven't got time to read the whole book; there'll be slides to summarise the main points so everyone can join the discussion. Book club language is English. Looking forward to seeing you in May! Find the latest slides here: https://www.figma.com/@SabineBallata https://twitter.com/SabineBallata https://bekokoro.com

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!
Last UX Book Club before the summer break! Join us via Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87487947515 In June, we'll discuss 'Engaged: Designing for Behaviour Change' by Amy Bucher. How to change behaviours has probably been one of the hottest topics in recent weeks. This book helps you 'incorporate behaviour change principles into your designs to help people achieve meaningful goals, learn and grow, and connect with one another. 'Engaged' offers practical tips for design professionals to apply the psychology of engagement to their work.' Sounds good? Then get reading and join us on the 18th of June! As always, don't worry if you haven't got time to read the whole book; there'll be slides to summarise the main points so everyone can join the discussion. Book club language is English.
