UX is a field that moves quickly. While the book contains a great deal of useful information that will remain relevant for many years, in order to keep up with changes and advances in the field, information that is expected to change rapidly is available here.
You’ll notice that the book offers URL tags at the end of every chapter. For now, some resource pages are grouped together by part of the book. These sections will be expanded and broken out as the chapter resources grow over time. Resources for UX career pathways (chapters 11 and 12) are most fully built out at this point.
