Livecycle@MAX 2010 – Pick of the Week!

What can I say? There are so many quality Livecycle ES sessions at MAX this year that it makes it hard to pick a new candidate each week to highlight. Nevertheless, after much investigation, here is the one I want to promote.

Advanced Dynamic Form Design

Join author J.P. Terry for a hands-on lab covering advanced form design techniques and his latest tips and tricks. For instance, you’ll learn how to add an auto-completion feature to a PDF form that provides relevant suggestions as the user types into the form. See other advanced techniques that make form completion much easier and more accurate. The techniques will be taught within the context of the Institutional Investor case study from Terry’s book “Paperless: Real-World Solutions with Adobe Technology.”

Tracks: Design, Develop
Audience: Web Designer, Web Developer, Application Developer
Skill Level: Advanced
Speaker: J.P. Terry
Product: LiveCycle ES
Times:
Monday, October, 25th, 12:45 pm – 2:15 pm
Tuesday, October, 26th, 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

Note that this is an advanced level session. I want to attend this myself and get the tips right from J.P. Just to let you know who he is, J.P. Terry is the CEO of SmartDoc Technologies, a leading consulting firm in the field of intelligent document solutions with offices in NY, NJ, and Beijing, China. SmartDoc specializes in LiveCycle and has developed paperless solutions for Fidelity Investments, Merrill Lynch, and Citigroup. J.P. often writes and speaks about dynamic PDF and is the author of “Creating Dynamic Forms with Adobe LiveCycle Designer” (Adobe Press, 2007) and “Paperless: Real-World Solutions with Adobe Technology” (Adobe Press, 2010). Prior to SmartDoc Technologies, J.P. founded BrandWizard Technologies, a division of Omnicom (OMC), and was the CEO of BrandWizard from 2000 until 2005.

Remember, Livecycle@MAX also sold out early last year. Register now if you are going so you don’t have to wait another year. I’m going to be there the whole week.
See you!

MAX 2010 – Get your LiveCycle ES Career on Track!

MAX 2010, October 23 -27th at the LA Convention Center, will feature an expanded LiveCycle ES bundle including tons of new materials and topics. All sessions and hands on training will be done with the latest versions including such awesome improvements as Action Builder and the Service Discovery plug in.

It’s no secret, LiveCycle ES developers are in high demand. Don’t believe me, check our the barrage of “LiveCycle Developers Wanted” postings (297 results) on the Google LiveCycle Developers list. Some pay as high as $400/hour! If you want to put your tech career into high gear, you will definitely want to get the “LiveCycle@MAX” bundle which includes LiveCycle preconference training and full MAX conference pass. THIS SOLD OUT EARLY LAST YEAR so book it soon. The 2009 pre-conference LiveCycle ES workshops even sold out faster than the Photoshop training.

I’ll be teaching one session which will be featured later. Every week on Technoracle, we’ll try to feature one new MAX 2010 LiveCycle featured promotion.

Here is Technoracle’s featured promotion for MAX 2010 for the week of July 12, 2010:

Developing a LiveCycle ES2.5 Application

This program for enterprise developers combines one-and-a-half days of introductory preconference training on Adobe® LiveCycle® Enterprise Suite 2.5 with a full conference pass to MAX 2010.

The “Developing a LiveCycle ES2.5 Application” preconference lab is an essential introduction to developing user-centric applications with Adobe LiveCycle ES2.5. LiveCycle ES2.5 allows both business and IT professionals to visually assemble end-to-end processes, which when combined with rich interfaces, create engaging applications that unify systems and people quickly and flexibly. We’ll present an end-to-end use case bringing a rich Internet application (RIA) and a LiveCycle application together. You’ll learn about the LiveCycle IDE, the Admin User Interface, and the LiveCycle ES2.5 solution components as we guide you through development of this comprehensive use case.

We strongly recommend this training to those new to LiveCycle ES2.5, or those who would like a refresher, in order to get the most value out of the more advanced LiveCycle topics that will be presented during MAX.

The Developing a LiveCycle ES2.5 Application preconference lab will take place the following dates and times at the Los Angeles Convention Center:

Adobe MAX 2010

Adobe MAX 2010 takes place on Oct 23-27 at the LA Convention Center (same place as last year). The website is up and running at http://max.adobe.com/.

This is the one place where you get to meet the Adobe ones face to face.

If you are a startup and want to let Adobe users see your product or offering, consider becoming a sponsor. There are tons of packages available and some companies like Konductor Software have found this a really great way to reach their core customers:
This is going to be a great party!
