In order to meet fire marshal codes, we will have to limit the number of attendees to the available chairs. If you RSVP, then find out you will not be able to attend, please change your attendance status to "Not Going", so that someone else can take your place. Thanks!

We'll have pizza and drinks at 6:30, and the meeting will start at 7:00, in the Park Conference Room of Adobe Systems' East Tower, 345 Park Avenue, San Jose.

To park underneath the Adobe building, use the Almaden Avenue entrance, under the East Tower. If the security guard at the parking entrance asks for an Adobe contact, use Stephen Nielson's name.

See you there!

    I thought the presentation was absolutely fascinating. Bert's skills really get you thinking outside the box and his speaking style was so down to earth, it was great.

    Greta program. Amazing. Something I would never be able to do. I do not have the artistic ability or patience to work for YEARS on a piece of art work. I like the idea of learning how PS tools work and use the tools for your own purpose, not necessarily how they were designed to be used. Also like hearing from Adobe explaining how their Cloud services will work.

    Any chance that anyone from Adobe can give us a few minutes regarding the decision to move all Adobe SW to the Creative cloud only?

    May 13, 2013

    • George H.

      Thanks, Dan.

  • Dan C.

    Well, I will be there, but won't be sitting anyway, so this will free up a seat for someone on the waiting list.

  • Baroness D.

    I THINK THEY SHOULD GIVE CHOICE FOR US TO DESIDE HOW WE WANT TO PURCHASE THE PHOTOSHOP PROGRAM. INSTEAD TRYIN TO FORCE US TO MOVE THE CREATIVE CLOUD ONLY. THIS IS FREE COUNTRY AMERICA.

  • AJ V.

    Is parking available at Adobe building?

    May 13, 2013

    • Dan C.

      Yes, parking is free, and can be accessed from either Almaden Blvd. on the East side of the building, or around the corner from Park Ave. There tends to be a long line of cars on Almaden, so I recommend the Park Ave. garage entrance (tho' it is a little more difficult to find your way after you park). Then make your way to the East Lobby, right at the corner of Almaden & Park. That's where you'll check in, and the meeting room is right there.

    Sorry to miss the talented but certifiably insane Bert, but I have a previous obligation in SF. Enjoy...I can imagine the gaping mouths in the crowd.

    will this be online?

    April 28, 2013

    • Dan C.

      We have had limited success doing this in the past, as it depends on whether or not an AV Tech is willing to volunteer their time to work late. I don't work for Adobe, so I don't have a lot of pull there. But, let me see what I can do. FYI, Bert has LOTS of videos on YouTube.
