#AskAdobeCare: Exploring the Expanded Creative Possibilities of Flash Professional CC with Joseph Labrecque

Adobecare_Banner_JL-bw

On Thursday, April the 23rd, at 12:00 Pacific Time… Adobe Care will be moderating a TwitterView which I will be hosting around Flash Professional CC. I encourage everyone to visit their announce post for full details and I hope you can make it!

Do you have questions about Flash? Unsure about all of the possibilities available to you with Flash Professional CC?

Tune in Thursday 4/23 for our #AskAdobeCare Twitterview where Adobe Community Professional, Joseph Labrecque, will be here to answer your questions!

Tweet your questions with #AskAdobeCare, and we will supply the answers. We will try our best to answer as many questions as we can during this 60-minute session, but we can’t promise that all questions will be answered.

I’d like to highlight a couple of other sessions around Flash Professional CC that are coming up as well:

Please give them your support!

Adobe MAX 2014

Adobe MAX October 4-8, 2014, Los Angeles, CA

My first Adobe MAX was 2008 in San Francisco. This was also the time when I first stepped into my role as an Adobe Education Leader. As a result of these two events coinciding… I always look forward to connecting with both the wider Adobe community and specifically the ACP and AEL groups during community and education events. If you are involved in education and will be at MAX – check out the #CreateEdu Unconference on Sunday!

I have been to every single MAX since that time… so it’s strange that this will be the first time since then I will not be in attendance or speaking. I’ll certainly miss seeing everyone from the community leader, user group, and education teams… but I can’t feel too bad, as my wife and I will be celebrating 10 years of marriage somewhere very tropical. Good excuse, right? Next year, friends!

Go ahead and register – there is still time!

AEL Advisory Board (Adobe Higher Education)

Pleased to announce that I am the newest higher education representative on the Adobe Education Leader Advisory Board. The process involves being nominated by the current board members and then having nominees undergo an election among the AELs of a particular segment. The board itself exists within the AEL community as a way to provide direct representation of an AEL segment (in my case, higher education) to the Adobe Education Team. As you can see below; the board is full of stellar AELs and I’m happy to be working with them in the coming years!
