At this event we’ll go through the rest of the book and the last 30 min we’ll Skype in with Laura Klein and ask her all our questions.
Laura Klein is one of the UX Superstars and was working closely with Eric Ries who coined the term Lean Startups. In her book UX for Lean Startups, she goes through the most common pitfalls we should avoid when designing products.

Instead of reading a full book we’re dividing it into chapters. This makes it more do-able (for some) to get through the book. At each event, we’ll then dive into specific chapters.
After reading each chapter (at home) take some time to write down your key take away/insights. You’ll be sharing these at the Book Club event to kickstart each chapter discussion. These insights will be shared at the CPHUX Co-Working Space afterward, for others to learn from the group’s combined insights.
Depending on the book, we can do try to do methods or tangible exercises, “Learning by doing”.
To attend this event it is required that you’ve read the chapter(s) for the specific event. You don’t have to participate in all events and are welcome to just participate in one.
We always have a physical copy of the book we’re reading in the CPHUX Co-Working Space. You can’t borrow it home with you, but you can read it in the space (for all of those who like to read books but don’t have the money to buy it or want to ensure you actually want to own the book)
Great user experiences (UX) are essential for products today, but designing one can be a lengthy and expensive process.

UX expert Laura Klein shows you what it takes to gather valuable input from customers, build something they’ll truly love, and reduce the time it takes to get your product to market.
