TriUPA kicked off the TriUPA UX Book Club last Tuesday! At our inaugural meeting we had fried pickled okra (yum) and decided that we'd focus on books that had subject matter with practical application, but that weren't too technical. Since it's our first go, we settled on Luke Wrobkewski's "Mobile First" book (http://www.abookapart.com/products/mobile-first).
The Book Apart series tends to be well-written, interesting and short, so we're not biting off more than we can chew for our first book. We're planning on meeting up in a couple of months to discuss the book, and maybe even again after that to discuss some of what we've been able to do with what we've learned!
Our kickoff meeting was a big success and we're looking forward to more folks joining in as they're interested. Go to http://www.meetup.com/triupa-book-club/ with your inquiries and ideas, and to sign up for more information. You can also keep an eye on triupa.org and @triupa on twitter, or contact me undefined Jake undefined at firstname.lastname@example.org or @JacobGeibRosch on twitter.
