Liz’s New Position

The Community Team at Adobe is constantly evolving and 2011 is turning out to be a year of many changes. Adobe proposed to our team a new outreach program targeting PHP, JAVA, jQuery/HTML, and Android.

Starting July 11th, I have a new role as the Community Development Program Manager! I get to take what I’ve learned over the last 10 years in the developer community and organize a new effort to target communities outside the Adobe Ecosystem.

We are aggressively going out into the world to say joining our ecosystem is going to earn them incredible access to tools that make them successful and a network that is welcoming and supportive. I will be using the support of our community leaders to help building bridges into these communities.

I’ll be talking about my many activities and people I find and connect with along the way, so follow me @lizign on Twitter to follow my adventures!

Thanks for the support!

Liz Arroyave Frederick
Community Development Program Manager

Upcoming Speaking Gigs

In the next few weeks I’ll be speaking at two different conferences, one on each coast.

On March 21, I’ll be talking about how to navigate the waters when two developer communities are working together at the Evans Data Developer Relations conference in San Jose. I had a great time speaking there last year with my colleague Craig Goodman, and am looking forward to returning.

And then on April 5 I’ll be at Social Media & Community 2.0 Strategies in Boston, on the topic of what NOT to do in community management. Looking at the rest of the speaker roster, I’m really excited to hear what they all have to say, and honored I’m on the list.

If you’re going to be at either event, or looking for a couple of good events in the near future, I hope to see you there!
