Events - Adobe Creative Suite User Group - San Jose AfterMAX event and Creative Cloud Intro - May 18
Adobe Creative Suite User Group - San Jose
I am rescheduling this meeting, due to the overwhelming positive response I have received. I have spoken with the folks at Adobe, and they are committed to giving you all the facts, so you can decide if Creative Cloud is right for you. Five hundred thousand people already are subscribing, so let's keep an open mind and work together to find the right solution for you.
I ask you to post your questions and concerns - in a polite, non-threatening manner - on the forum I have created here:

I would like to invite everyone to come to Adobe San Jose on this evening, to hear some of the great news we learned during AdobeMAX 2013. We will have demos of some great new features (TBD). The meeting will be presented live online via Adobe Connect, and recorded for later viewing.
I have also invited a representative from Adobe to answer your questions and concerns about the announcement that Adobe is moving to a cloud-based delivery system for their future products. There are a lot of misconceptions and misunderstandings about Creative Cloud, so let's get them out in the open and clear the air! I ask you to be respectful and courteous, but encourage you to attend to get all the facts.
