Another busy day at MAX! Today was much calmer than the first day, but we still saw a really energetic and exciting keynote appearances by VP Danny Winokur and Director of Evangelism Ben Forta (and their guests). For now, everyone’s getting ready to see Rainn Wilson (of The Office) present some awards, check out the Sneak Peeks of new technology and apps, and rock out to Weezer later tonight at the MAX Bash. Here are a few pictures from today’s activity, with some highlights from sessions featuring Acrobat and online services.

Everyone seems really Passionate about Adobe – the energy level is really good! -William Lau, Senior Product Marketing Manager
Well, day one of Adobe MAX 2011 has come; I write this from the break area of the show floor, where I’m sharing a table with several people whom I have never met. This, I think, is one if many things that makes MAX such an amazing experience: everyone comes to this massive convention center in downtown LA, knowing perhaps no one and perhaps a few others from his or her own company. Now, only halfway through the first of three long days, people are mingling. They share tech-y jokes and participate in the same “bring your own device” labs, they sit with other strangers at lunch and wander in tandem across the massive showroom floor. Developers and designers rub elbows while attending demos or watching this morning’s keynote speech – and the energy has been palpable. We’re all here to learn from each other and be inspired, and the first few hours have been no disappointment. Scroll down to see the first few pictures of this space and the booths that fill it, especially our own Acrobat pods in the main Adobe booth!
