Social marketers know Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, Tumblr and all the rest. But besides how to use the tools, what else do social media managers need to know? Luckily, there’s Adobe Summit to help them make sense of it all.
It’s hard enough to create an engaging, targeted, and successful website for your business. Today, you have to do it not just for the web, but for an ever-increasing number of tablets and smartphones, too.
Responsive design is a powerful methodology used to design websites that look good on a variety of screen sizes and resolutions.

This Wednesday morning session at 11:30am is a “Must Do” for anyone looking to master the challenge of the multi-device world we’re living in.
The hapless analyst in this video definitely needs to dial down the buzzwords and dial up the skill set. Luckily for her (and you), Summit is just a few short weeks away. In just a few days you can replace all your buzzwords with cutting-edge skills and insights.
Making the transition from the world of traditional journalism to today’s digital one is a challenge for many, but not for John Battelle. As a founder of Wired Magazine, The Industry Standard, The Web 2 Conferences, and most recently Federated Media Publishing, Battelle has succeeded at being an writer, thought leader and an innovative entrepreneur.
And this March he will be joining us at Adobe Summit to share his story and thoughts on our digital world. For anyone interested in where the digital world is heading, John’s session will be a must-see.
It’s not every day that you get to hear first hand from a man who has jumped from the very edge of space and broken the speed of sound (without the help of a fighter jet)!
That man is Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner and we are excited to announce that he will be joining us at Summit! Given that he had a huge impact on social networks when he made his Red Bull Stratus record leap in October 2012, we thought he would be a great addition.
When sponsor Red Bull posted a picture of Felix touching down on Facebook, within 40 minutes the image was shared more than 29,000 times and generated nearly 216,000 likes and more than 10,000 comments. During the jump, half the worldwide trending topics on Twitter were about Felix. And on YouTube the jump was a hit with close to 8 million people tuning in to watch the live stream – the biggest live audience to date on that channel.
We can’t wait to hear Felix speak at Summit and hope you’ll be able to join us!
We’re pleased and honored to announce that gritty rock and roll duo The Black Keys will be headlining this year’s Summit Bash on March 6th.
The Black Keys have an impressive resume. They’ve topped Alternative radio charts around the world, rocked Coachella, opened for the Rolling Stones, and won three 2011 Grammy Awards, as well as being nominated for five more Grammys in 2012. We can’t wait to welcome them to Summit and we hope you can’t either!
The Khan Academy is a not-for-profit organization with the lofty goal of changing education for the better by providing a free world-class education for anyone, anywhere.
Since their inception in 2006, Kahn Academy has made good on that mission by delivering more than 230 million views of its archive of free educational videos in subjects ranging from organic chemistry to art history to macroeconomics.
We’re honored to welcome the founder and Executive Director of Kahn Academy, Salman Kahn, as a featured speaker for Adobe Summit this year. In 2012, Time magazine named Khan in its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. We can’t wait to hear what he has to share with us.
Salman Kahn’s 2011 TED talk is below, but to see him live in action you’ll have to come to Summit!
