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 asĀ 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

We had a full house at the venue – and below are a few photos of the event and its aftermath. Have photos from the event? Please share in the comments!

Adobe Day at DU

As part of my “day job” at the University of Denver, I try to both get university people interested in Adobe solutions and provide the means for Adobe people to get information to the university. One mechanism that has been set up for this is the ability to hold small, mini-conferences on campus with Adobe representatives. I was able to help organize one such event, yesterday. The focus of this event was Creative Cloud and the Digital Publishing Suite. I was asked to speak on some of the Edge Tools and Services and also touch upon some of the good
