It's a very long story, I transitioned from being a web dev/web designer, I did so many other jobs before landing UX.I suggest for you to take up - David Travis courses on UDEMY. I've been saying this to many people on reddit - I don't work with these guys or affiliated with them in anyway, I just got this advice from experienced UX designers as well and happened to like it : link

The classes from David Travis are a must ! User Experience (UX): The Ultimate Guide to Usability and UX is very well-rounded and a good starting point.
And Daniel Walter Scott has some good courses about the adobe suite but you can find them on youtube as well

Well, I’d say you’ve done a pretty decent job of identifying the big asks of a UX designer. It’s a team role that definitely benefits from good collaboration skills. It’s creative, but in a scientific way. Collecting data, helping team members understand that data, n then coordinating their ideas and talents to build stuff based on the data is the essence of the job I think. And I’m sure though being “solitary” by nature, facilitating is a skill as much as anything. Work at it and you’ll do fine. UX def is a wide reaching discipline, showing up everywhere in daily life. No surprise... It’s about understanding people, their goals n aspirations n designing things they find useful n work for them. So if that sounds attractive - you’re def barking up the right tree.

I did this course a few years back. It’s affordable n I think does a great job of covering all the basics for a beginner- intermediate. He talks about “red routes” - those are the things you’ll want to put that hyper-fixation on ;) Get obsessed with finding ways to help people get better at completing key tasks.

I’ve not done any boot camps (they weren’t a thing then), but my own personal journey started with that course about 8 years ago (the content is still totally relevant n is frequently refreshed, UX principles don’t change because humans don’t). After that a couple more books n mock projects in spare time... then i was doing well in interviews n getting job offers :) Gd luck, I’ve a feeling you’ll do great from your summary of what you learnt n find attractive about UX. Really picked out the key stuff n seem self aware enough to know what you’ll need to work on. n if you need any help or want to discuss topics that pop up in courses lemme know!

Thanks for the recommendations. I'm gonna definitely check them out.

As someone who is trying to revamp in the field, which books would you recommend so that we get a good grasp on the concepts, and those that will help me in making case studies for personal projects?

These were a couple of them that were suggested to :

Validating Product Ideas

Design of everyday things

don't make me think

rocket surgery made easy

Just enough research


Interviewing users

Refactoring UI

How to make sense of mess

Apart from these, I am also doing a course on Udemy from David Travis.

Is there any chronological order in which I must be reading them?

Would really appreciate your response. Thanks!

User Experience (UX): The Ultimate Guide to Usability and UX by David Travis on Udemy is a pretty good one to start with on the theoreticals. There are also practical application exercises throughout.

Awesome! I'm from more of a UI/Graphic Design background myself, also starting on a journey into UX. This case study was my final project as part of this Udemy course:

This sounds like a great "design" problem to solve :P

I'm on the same ocean: have researched about the job and looking to make the shift, have an idea how to do the thing, but find the doing the thing part overwhelming. But one of the things I've learned while studying is that we want to fail fast and fail forward so we are guided what to do next. Feedback from others is critical in this, so I'd recommend to join communities!

I personally cannot afford a bootcamp so I've done my research on some good online courses for structured learning, which I'm also taking. You can check out User Experience (UX): The Ultimate Guide to Usability and UX course by David Travis on Udemy or Google UX Certificate Program on Coursera for starters. The critique about the latter is it's very Google-centric so it's good to complement it with other learning materials, but the deliverables are structured well enough for beginners.

I hope that helps. Happy learning!

Check out this course by Dr Davis Travis

And this course by University of Michigan

Both are very comprehensive and introduce you to the UX process, beginning to end.

I would suggest reading a bunch of case studies as it helped me understand other people’s process and their reasoning behind why. When I had no projects to showcase, I redesigned apps that are already out there. You find an app that you believe have bad user experience and re-do it. This way, you can have a project to showcase and brush up your skills.

Design Community:

Programs to learn: (This is what I use, but now, it’s between Figma and Sketch for designing)

Resources: (My favorite case study website) (Like Stackoverflow, but for design)

Hope this helps you get started! :)
