Joint General Meeting/Adobe Creative Suite User Group




Power Tools for the Web – Edge Tools and Services & OCMMA Board Election

For those of you who attended our Adobe CS6 Launch Camp back in June, you'll remember that Adobe Community Professional Chris Griffith presented at an afternoon session about mobile development. So for our first meeting of the new year, we're bringing Chris back to tell us more!

It feels like the online world is changing almost daily, thanks to new web technologies and the proliferation of devices and internet connections. So how can you stay on top of these new technologies and create compelling content for this new, modern web?

Adobe allows you to stay in the forefront by launching Adobe Edge Tools & Services. In this session, Chris will demonstrate all you need to know about these powerful new tools and services. Everything from Edge Animate, Edge Code, Edge Inspect, to PhoneGap Build, and even a sneak of Edge Reflow, among many others.

    A big thank you to Chris Griffith for an information-packed presentation. Chris provided an excellent overview of the new Adobe Edge tools, and his demo's were easy to follow and learn from. Personally I look forward to more use of these tools in my own projects.
