Adobe MAX

Adobe's MAX 2009 Conference comes to Los Angeles Oct 4-7. This is the place were the Adobe developer and designer community comes together to learn and share best practices, and see emerging technologies. The conference is packed with sessions on cross-media workflows, prototyping, standards-based web design, user interface design, online advertising, interactive games, accessibility, motion graphics, video encoding, video creation, and much more. Choose from hundreds of sessions found at to create an agenda that meets your needs.

Every year, MAX attendees learn tricks for designing more productively and discover new skills for creating engaging experiences. They get sneak peeks of upcoming software and network with some of the top designers in the world. At the end of the four day conference, they're inspired to create next-generation experiences, with heads chock-full of the know-how to make it happen. Here are just a few reasons why MAX is a "must-attend" conference

  • See how to create compelling applications, content, and video and deliver it on screens of every size, across operating systems, accessible from anywhere at any time.
  • Learn how to take ideas to market faster through design and development workflows that support iterative development by attending hands-on labs and learning from real-world case studies.
  • All MAX sessions and labs are taught by the best of the best—the kind of people you don't just run into every day. They can share their years of experience regarding what works and what doesn't.
  • MAX attendees come from organizations all over the world, from small businesses to Fortune 1000 companies and local nonprofits to large government agencies. You can exchange ideas and build one-on-one relationships with people who have dealt with challenges similar to yours.
  • Expose yourself to new ways of thinking by seeing some of the coolest, boundary-pushing, experimental work out there. In previous years, 94% of past attendees said they left MAX inspired to innovate.
  • The majority of attendees of MAX 2008 said the event exceeded their expectations at providing opportunities for learning tips, tricks, and the latest industry trends.
