I am extremely happy to announce that for the 5th consecutive year I will be speaking at Adobe MAX. I will also be trying for the 4th consecutive year to be named as an Adobe MAX Master, as one of the top twenty speakers at the entire event. This year I’m bringing 2 new 75 minute sessions of all new content and I wil be doing each session twice since they always sell out. But please register ASAP because I’m serious that my session always sell out and I had people sitting on the floor last year.
Adobe MAX is always one of my favorite conferences to speak at and attend every year. Early bird pricing lasts until July 31st and my sessions are selling out fast so be sure to go register today and I hope to see you there!
