I would like to be able to become an expert in User Experience and need your help and advice to get a solid starting point. If I have this skill then I will be so much better at my job. Ideally I want to be able to clearly articulate why one experience is superior to another and why. Or when designing something new, I would like to come up with an educated user interface which will work best with the users. I don't need to be designing these myself. But it's very important that I work with designers and articulate exactly what i want them to accomplish with their designs.
Please help me figure out how I can get there quickly and add this skill to my quiver of other skills.
I am willing to take classes, go to meet ups, meet people and read books. I have to find something that works well for me because I lack time. I prefer something formal like classroom but i wonder if this is a skill that is taught in a class.
Thanks for your help.
