My Adobe MAX 2011 Speaking Schedule

I realized this morning that I have yet to write about the various sessions I’ll be doing during Adobe MAX in Los Angeles this year.

My 360|Flex Schedule

Well, 360|Flex 2011 in Denver, CO begins Sunday, April 10th! Since I live in the Denver area, I’m going to be driving to the conference everyday. Hoping to chat with a lot of Adobe community people over the next week – say hi to Blucifer when you all fly in :) Don’t forget to submit your questions for the Open Screen Project: Views from the Trenches panel being put on by RMAUG and moderated by Jun Heider! I’ll probably need to adjust this between now and next week. Anyhow… here is how my schedule is looking so far*: SUNDAY, April

My 360|Flex Proposal was Rejected… yet I am Thrilled!

This was the one day that I didn’t have any sessions to present and so was able to go most of the day without lugging my laptop around wherever I went. i generally was able to sit in on most of the sessions I had selected, but it was very difficult switching from a MAX

Adobe MAX 2010 Wrap-Up Part 1: Pre-Conference

So… it’s taken me a while to get these thoughts together and I’m not going to write about the general sessions, announcements, Sneaks, MAX Bash and all – you can read that elsewhere. What I’ll be providing here is an overview of events from my perspective, day-by-day, with a short overall wrap-up at the conclusion. Many photographs. Sound good? Excellent. Saturday: I arrived Saturday evening and took a taxi straight to the University of Southern California, where Adobe Education was holding a summit reception at the School of Cinematic Arts. Had the taxi drop me off on the campus outskirts
