About this event

As the saying goes, Anything that can be experienced can be designed. But what is the foundation of a good experience anyway — and in today's economy of digital products, how can we reconcile usability with business goals?

This month, our theme is HCI and UX, and we will be reading the following texts to help answer the above questions:

  • Don Norman, The Design of Everyday Things, Revised and Expanded Edition (2013) 
  • Chamorro et al., Ethical Tensions in UX Design Practice (2023)

The reading group will meet on 23 February 2024 at 12:00 PM GMT for a structured discussion of the reading material led by our hosts, preceded by an icebreaker session and interspersed with prompts to get you thinking critically about the gap between design and development. Sign up now to 📖 book 📖 your place!

📢📢📢 Within 48 hours of your registration, you’ll receive an onboarding email containing full details and copies of the reading material, some helpful pointers to get the most out of being in this community, and an exclusive Paper Bytes bookmark for new members 🔖

About Paper Bytes

Launched in December 2023 by the Google Developer Student Club at University of London, Paper Bytes is a monthly virtual reading group where students of all levels and backgrounds meet to discuss published work on various developments in tech. Generally, our sessions are for you if you're interested in:

  • Networking and socializing with other students with similar interests in tech and literature
  • Extending your knowledge on tech topics that you might have heard of, but not know that much about
  • Constructing, or learning to construct, evidence-based arguments in an all-inclusive space for intellectual discussion.
