Open to anyone in the area who is interested in developing video games. In order to have a little structure, we'll try to do a couple things each week:

Introduce new members. What have you worked on, game related or not? What do you want to work on next?

Discuss this week's conversation starter. Some article, video or game that we can dig into a little.

Members can present any games they're working on, for feedback or just to brag.

Of course, it's all very informal. The main goal is interesting conversation(s) about our passion.

Looking forward to it!

Join us online for the next book we will be reading in the KC Tech Book Club!

From Amazon: "Learn how companies make us feel good about doing what they want. Approaching persuasive design from the dark side, this book melds psychology, marketing, and design concepts to show why we're susceptible to certain persuasive techniques. Packed with examples from every nook and cranny of the web, it provides easily digestible and applicable patterns for putting these design techniques to work. Organized by the seven deadly sins, it includes:

Pride -- use social proof to position your product in line with your visitors' values
Sloth -- build a path of least resistance that leads users where you want them to go
Gluttony -- escalate customers' commitment and use loss aversion to keep them there
Anger -- understand the power of metaphysical arguments and anonymity
Envy -- create a culture of status around your product and feed aspirational desires
Lust -- turn desire into commitment by using emotion to defeat rational behavior
Greed -- keep customers engaged by reinforcing the behaviors you desire

Now you too can leverage human fallibility to create powerful persuasive interfaces that people will love to use -- but will you use your new knowledge for good or evil? Learn more on the companion website, evilbydesign.info."

Feel free to still come if you haven't read the book or just read parts of it or read it years ago and can't remember anything about it. It will be a very laid-back discussion format.

What does a good case study look like? And how should you build them to make your portfolio shine?

A great UX case study tells a story about you and like all the best stories, case studies benefit tremendously from a solid structure that guides the reader through your thinking and experience. Join us for this webinar as we discuss how to create impactful case studies with the right structure that will help your portfolio stand out from the rest.

What you will learn:
- What is a Case Study?
- How case studies are essential to your portfolio
- Anatomy of the Case Study
- The seven questions every case study should answer

How to join us: Once you register with Eventbrite, you will receive an email with the links to the live webinar from BigMarker. If you do not receive your link, please email virtual@thinkful.com."
