For the next meetup we will be reading 100 Things Every Designer Needs to Know About People by Susan Weinschenky:

We design to elicit responses from people. We want them to buy something, read more, or take action of some kind. Designing without understanding what makes people act the way they do is like exploring a new city without a map: results will be haphazard, confusing, and inefficient. This book combines real science and research with practical examples to deliver a guide every designer needs. With it you’ll be able to design more intuitive and engaging work for print, websites, applications, and products that matches the way people think, work, and play.

    Eventbrite - UX Book Club Sydney - April 2017

    Get in touch
    We use the UX Book Club Sydney Google group to let you know what we are up to.
    Alternatively, you can chat with us on @UXbookclub_SYD Le Trinh, Kevin Wilkins, Mike Colibraro and Ivy Hornibrook run the group.

    What is it all about?
    Between 25 and 45 people turn up every two months to discuss a book about user experience design. It is a fun, friendly and relaxed event where you can meet other people working in the industry.
    The book is mostly about pure UX but sometimes we have a little fun and read something that relates to design but is not just about design. 

    Depending on how many of us attend, we may split into two or more groups. We have drinks and snacks and talk about the book and the themes in the book. Confession! Not everyone has always read the book, but they will read the summary and come ready to talk about the themes of the book anyway :) There are heaps of digital meetup forums to talk UX - the bookclub is special because we get to meet in person and slow things down a little.
