I am venturing into UI/UX design and I would love to dig deeper into this technology, I am a front end engineer html/css/js and I want to learn and be an expert in UI/UX design. If someone could direct me to books and tutorials I have to go through to be a competitive player in this industry.

  • Also could you let me know if I which software are needed i.e Photoshop to learn to success in this profession. Any assistance would be appreciated. Aug 5, 2014 at 5:09

    My understanding is UI is an element of UX and these are "pre-development/coding". Aug 5, 2014 at 5:26
  • UI/UX not necessarily has to be pre-development/coding. They both can go hand in hand or one can also bring the UI/UX part after the backend of the site is built

There is a book called "Dont Make Me Think" by Steve Krug. Now I havent read this book but I have heard great things about this book & that it is a must read. You can find the book on Amazon here You can refer this book for UX

The other really good site which I recently came across is HackDesign which has some really cool lessons & I think will be really useful to get started

I will keep adding more links as I come across them
