MAX 2004 Greater China , Taipei, Taiwan (November 8, 2004)
MAX 2004 Greater China in Taipei was quite an experience, over 600 attendees, 5 tracks, dozens of sessions, press interviews, way too many photo shoots (both formal and spontaneous), and some of the most friendly people I have met anywhere. This was a primarily Flash oriented event (as most events in Asia tend to be), but there was also lots of interest in ColdFusion, Flex, and mobile computing. I presented two keynote segments (on Flex and ColdFusion) and five sessions (three on ColdFusion, one on Flex, and one on SMS). On my last night there I got to see a little bit of Taipei (the first time I had left the hotel since arriving there!). The Macromedia Greater China team is already talking about the 2005 conference, and I definitely plan on attending. Thanks to Kevin Lin, Val Chang, and Melody Chan for sharing their pictures.
