This is my first group so I'm going to feel it out first before getting into organization
It's really easy since there's more info about me on the net than in my own head, but long story short: a former freelance computer programmer interested in usability since 2006 who never quite managed to become famous with applying it, unfortunately. Now moving towards the mobile platforms where a smooth interaction is even more important and necessary - here I know I'm not going to be famous but at least I'm hoping to have more fun and better clients :) Voila!
Location: SpainStandard Set Answer:
I chose to study this in 2006 while being an MBA student and decided I wanted to know how users interact with e-commerce sites and why so few orders were actually completed back then. My teacher was somehow overwhelmed with this idea and I had to abandon it and the school too. Since then I kept reading books and blogs about the subject but never attended a class (even online) to put everything in my head in its proper order and as a freelance I had very few opportunities to actually involve myself more into this world. Now my curiosity expands beyond e-commerce and websites since I am moving towards building apps for smartphones and new questions seem to pop up every day in this new field.
I am hoping to find here new information about the way people interact with the available technology and a group of really motivated people willing to share their knowledge and not just receive it without asking questions or participating in discussions.
I do not know what "helping with the study group organization" means, can you explain what that involves?
