Adobe MAX Unawards: Featuring a Few AEL Recipients!

For the past two years, Serge Jespers (@sjespers) has developed a widget to draw attention to the upcoming Adobe MAX conference that involves both video and community collaboration. Last year’s widget allowed users to post a short message on why one would want to attend MAX. This year’s widget allows users to record acceptance speeches for MAX Unawards and the whole process behind it is a great read!

So… we have a few Adobe Education Leaders who have received MAX Unawards! These are listed below and I encourage other AELs to submit and be added here…


Tom Green (@TomGreen) won the award for ‘Crustiest Tutorialist Of The Year


Joseph Labrecque (@JosephLabrecque) won the award for ‘Most Frustrated AIR Developer

David Egbert (@DaveEgbert) won the award for ‘Best Un Acceptance Speech

Think you deserve an Adobe MAX Unaward? You probably do – give it a shot!

Education Summit at Adobe MAX

Sunday, October 24 – Education Summit at MAX – Los Angeles Convention Center

If you are involved in education and will be attending Adobe MAX this year, I highly encourage you to check out the full education rundown and especially the preconference Education Summit!

Registration is reduced significantly for students and educators!


As an aside, I’ll be speaking on OSMF! Check out the full agenda!

Open Source Media Framework for Education
Joseph Labrecque, Senior Multimedia Application Developer, University of Denver

Whether your institution provides progressive video streams over simple HTTP or leverages the full streaming power of Adobe Flash Media Server, when deciding how to implement playback, the Open Source Media Framework (OSMF) is clearly one of the best choices available. Join Joseph Labrecque as he provides a brief overview of OSMF and demonstrates a range of customization options for developing media playback clients within the framework for educational needs. This presentation covers both functional concerns and custom skinning mechanisms to implement your institution’s unique branding requirements.
