It’s finally Spring, which means warm weather (I hope), longer days, and most importantly, the Adobe Civilian Government Road Show and MAX!
One of the best parts of my job is being able to get out and meet with our customers to help them understand and use our products more effectively. We’re taking our demos on the road in late April/early May for three Adobe Digital Government Forums:
- Baltimore, April 25
- Atlanta, April 30
- Denver, May 2
More details on the venues, registration, etc. will be coming soon. In the interim, have you registered for Adobe MAX yet? MAX will be held May 4-8 in Los Angeles, CA. It is the premiere event for designers, developers, and other content creators and creative professionals to learn about our digital media tools. There are always tons of hands-on sessions as well as government-specific topics and gatherings, so it’s a great opportunity to learn more about our products and how they can benefit your agency. We’ll have several members of our government team onsite at the event as well.
Also, if you’re not able to get out to some of these events, let the events come to you; our webinar series features a variety of topics for technical and executive audiences.
Hope to see you soon!

One of the perks of a Creative Cloud subscription is having access to exclusive features and products. While much of that content is in the form of exclusive applications (like the Edge Tools and Services), one of the latest new features is exclusive content via ‘Extensions.’ Let’s take a look at the newest benefit the Creative Cloud offers!
What are extensions?
Extensions are small plug-ins that perform a specific function within an application. Different applications have different extensions available to them; while we’re looking at Photoshop for this particular article, there are extensions available for other applications as well. While some extensions are available for non-Cloud users, there are some new ones that are currently exclusive for Cloud subscribers.
How do they work?
You can access extensions directly from the application that you’re working in. For example, in Photoshop CS6, you will choose Window > Extensions to see a list of currently available extensions.

This weekend was, of course, a huge event–so if you didn’t hear, the groundhog predicted an early spring this year!
(No one asks the squirrels what they think of the weather…)
But there was also another big event this weekend as well that you may have watched with several billion of your closest friends. Whatever team you rooted for (and whatever you thought of the game’s outcome), it had some lessons that we can all learn from. Here are a few:

Lisa Watkins joins Adobe after working as a government contractor for several agencies and their partners for over a decade – but she’s also an art school alumni with a background in the music and entertainment industries, as well as in high-tech. Her diverse background includes training/elearning, management, marketing, business development, video production, writing, editing, design (print/Web), Web development, sales, promotions/events, and presentations. In the government space, she’s worked on projects ranging from law enforcement to mental health resources and forensic toxicology. If she hasn’t done it, she probably knows someone who does!
