As usual, this year's Adobe MAX was fantastic. I'm sorry you could not all join me there, but it's never too early to start planning for next year!
Yes, it's true that everyone who attended the conference this year got a free 1 year subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud and Microsoft Office 365, as well as a new Microsoft Surface Pro 3. A few years ago when the Google TV first came out, everyone got one of those. I can't guarantee you will get new hardware if you come, but it if you don't go you will definitely miss out!
There were too many incredible things to try to list them all here, but here are a few highlights with links to info/videos.
Join us for our next meeting Thursday morning, May 15th @ 10:00AM, in Duncan Hall conference room.
Tyler is going to talk to us about some mobile development work he has done for the new Firefox OS phone that he has.
See you there!
Join us for our next meeting, Thursday morning, April 17th @ 10:00AM, in the Director's conference room in Duncan Hall. Please note, this is across the hall from our usual conference room meeting place. See you there!

Did you miss out on going to MAX this year? Well, now you're in luck because our friends at Adobe have posted most of the sessions online for you to view at you leisure and for free! ;-)
Mark Bransby is arranging to have a conference room (112 Duncan Hall) where people can get together to watch they keynote presentations live and discuss them. If you are interested in joining this group, he asks that you RSVP so they will know how many people to expect. Thanks.
If you would prefer to watch the keynotes on your own, visit the Adobe site to sign up.

Community Inspires Creativity
Join David Wadhwani, Adobe's SVP and GM of Digital Media, as he welcomes four incredibly creative minds to explore how they foster creativity and approach their work. You will hear from Rob Legato, an Oscar winning visual effects supervisor; Paula Scher, an iconic graphic designer and illustrator; Erik Johansson, an up and coming photographer and retouch artist; and Phil Hansen, a constraint-based artist that believes limitations drive creativity. We think you'll leave with more than a few new ideas to incorporate in your next creative project.
