Adobe Education Leader Institute 2010

During the last week of July, ~90 Adobe Education Leaders from around the world came together at Adobe HQ in San Jose, California for a week of networking, sharing, collaboration, and numerous other activities. Since having the opportunity to begin work as an AEL in late 2008, I always look forward to this event. While completely exhausting by week’s end; there is really no other experience that comes close to this! Monday evening marked a great reception at the Fairmount. Great to catch up with other AELs that were present last year, new AELs or those I hadn’t met previously,

An Update from San Jose at AEL2010

I’m still up to my neck at the fabulous week-long Adobe Education Leader Institute at Adobe HQ in San Jose, CA – but wanted to post a quick update about what is going on. If you’d like to follow the events live, there is a constant stream of tweets being generated. Just follow #AEL2010 to participate. Most important take-away so far: You think the Flash Platform is stagnant? Dying? Yesterday’s news? Wish I could say more but I am BLOWN AWAY by what is coming up. Flash lives, friends! The major reconstruction that went into producing Flash Player 10.1 is

Back at Adobe MAX 2009 in Los Angeles, I did a 30 minute presentation for FITC. This is a composite video from a screen recording I did on my presenter laptop merged with the live stream hosted by Influxis. I’ve been reformatting a lot of the presentations and webinars I’ve done over the past year and plan to host them all on Vimeo, at some point. So here is “Custom Event Reporting from Flash to Google Analytics”: FITC Unconference at Adobe MAX Los Angeles, California October 2009 With the ability to define and report custom events from within your Flash

Check Out the FITC Unconference @ Adobe MAX

Planning on attending Adobe MAX this year? Apart from the main event tracks, I highly encourage everyone to check out some of the sessions going on at the FITC Unconference. There is an amazing line-up of stellar speakers this year. Check out some of the session descriptions and I think you’ll agree that they are all incredibly compelling! One of the really neat things about these sessions is that they are all 30-minute presentations, which means you’ll have plenty of time to either attend a whole bunch, or just sneak some in between the regular MAX presentations. The content is
