2013 Adobe ColdFusion Summit 2013 Speaker List
Registration is open for the Adobe ColdFusion Summit 2013 in Las Vegas this October. The agenda is still being finalized, but the speaker list is now up, and an impressive line up it is! Oh, worth noting, registration costs $250, and when you register you get a copy of ColdFusion Builder which costs $299. Nice, huh?

2011 Flash Jeopardy At Adobe MAX 2011
Last year at MAX I hosted Are You Smarter Than An Evangelist (they weren't, the Evangelists won). This year we'll be playing Flash Jeopardy, and once again I am hosting! If you'll be at MAX, join the audience on Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 3:00 p.m. at the Flash Rocks Entertainment Lounge inside the Community Pavilion. Help us stump our four constants from the Flash community, send Flash trivia questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
2011 European Back From MAX Events
It's been a few years since we hosted MAX in Europe, and I am hoping that at some point we'll resurrect that event. But, in the interim, we are hosting a series of Back From MAX events right after MAX 2011. These day-long events in Paris, Berlin, and London will deep-dive into MAX highlights and announcements, giving those who are unable to join us in Los Angeles a taste of what MAX is all about. I'll be presenting the opening keynote at these events, and fellow evangelists will be presenting much of the content. Event details are all online, and I hope to see you there (unless I see you at MAX first, that is).
2011 MAX 2011 Discount For My "Friends"
Adobe MAX 2011 group discounts allow three or more attendees from the same company to attend MAX for the low price of $1095. And as they did in previous years, the MAX team has graciously allowed me to create a group of my own, a "Friends of Ben" group, which can qualify for the group rate. I have a finite number of discount codes. If you need one, do not reply here, please email me directly. And as quantity is limited, please only ask for one if you are really going to use it, and plan to use it quickly. Thanks, and I look forward to seeing you all in Los Angeles In October!
Oh, before anyone asks (because they do every year), no, the discount cannot be applied to existing registrations - this is for new registrations only. Also, it can't be used for any of the bundle passes.
2011 At Adobe Developer Tech Day In Shanghai
I just presented the first segment of the opening keynote at Adobe Developer Tech Day in Shanghai, China. Fellow evangelist Enrique Duvos is now on the stage wowing the audience with Stage 3D demos. This is a very technical audience, almost all online all the time. The interesting thing is that standing on stage I counted exactly 5 open laptops, everyone else was online on phones (primarily a mix of iPhones and Android devices) and tablets (iPads). My key message was on the importance of building apps for multiple devices and platforms and form-factors, and not being locked into single-vendor development which will preclude you from reaching a broader market. The audience themselves validated my point better than I could do so myself.
2011 Upcoming Summits In India And China
Adobe is hosting summits and tech days in India and China, and I plan to attend both. The Adobe Flash Platform Summit 2011 will take place in Bangalore, India, July 27th - 29th, 2011. The Adobe Developer Tech Day (focused on gaming) will take place in Shanghai, China, on August 3rd. Registration for both events is now open.
