    Big welcome. But I notice none of their main blog pages or individual archive pages yet disclose their employment. Could you pass the word to them that things change once they become a staffer?

    Having hung with some of these peeps at 360|Flex Europe, I can say they’re a good bunch. Eastern Europe will be nicely taken care of!
    Go, Mihai!

    Great for Romania and Eastern Europe…. too bad the Iberian Peninsula is still in the desert regarding this issue… specially on ColdFusion

    Barry, Romania is a great base for Eastern European operations because Adobe has a large office there, all needed supporting facilities and infrastructure, and more. And that’s just the base of operations, and just the start. We plan on adding lots more evangelists to the region in other countries too. Stay tuned.
    Tom, yep, their reputation is richly deserved! 😉

    Chris, we already have three based in Western Europe (Enrique Duvos, Andrew Shorten, and Serge Jespers). And all 7 actually have responsibilities throughout Europe. And we’ll be adding more individuals to the team, too.

    Hi Hugo….
    I am based in Barcelona, so that counts as both Iberian Peninsula and Western Europe 🙂
    Regarding CF knowledge in Europe, Claude Englebert recently joined Adobe as well. Based in Belgium , Claude has tremendous CF experience and it’s a great addition for us on this side of the ocean.
    If you need to reach out to him for any CF related activity feel free, or connect with me.
