Adobe MAX 2008 day one

The first day of MAX has ended at 10:30 pm Monday night. East coast time is taking it’s toll, but I know I am not the only one. I just finished moderating a video tips group that was full of drooping eyes. Today was a success with 4 new t-shirts and a few new tips learned. All of the sessions are going to be available for free at Adobe TV. I have heard the Flash Catylist (thermo) sessions were really good, the Flash Player Internals session had some nice insight on optimizing code, my favorite one of the day. The Flex Tips session showed off some features of Flex Builder that I never new existed and now will not be able to live without. MAX 2008 Sessions added to Adobe TV – 12/11/08 MAX 2008 on Adobe TV.

Adobe Max and Taterboy blog update

Adobe Max is just a few days away and we are so excited about some of the events planned this year. Unfortunately the little bit that I know can’t be discussed until Monday November 17. I will try to do some live blogging from the keynote as well as the rest of the conference. Some of you must be thinking I have been slacking off with about three weeks since my last post. Maybe you are not keeping track, but I am and I feel really bad about it. I assure you there are still plenty of post ideas rattling around topside and some are sitting on my hard drive partially complete. It has been really difficult, this past few weeks, finding the time to finish them up and make ’em live.
