Yesterday the Adobe Community team announced the launch of the Adobe Community Champions program, targetted at those active Adobe users who use their voice to reach out to community on a more personal level. I thought it was a great way to recognize these champions of Adobe.
I looked at the list of 87 users that were invited into this program, and I was glad to see a strong representation from across the globe: close to half of all community champions are from outside the U.S., most of which from countries were English is not the official language. There was good representation from Europe (Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden, Turkey, Czech Republic, Croatia, Armenia), and Latin America (Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Puerto Rico). I felt Asia was a bit unrepresented (only a handful from Singapore, Korea and India). I identified one user from Israel, and one from Egypt. English-speaking users in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, U.K. and South Africa rounded up the list.
It’ll be great to see this list grow and include more users from across the world next year. I’ll start to check out what our users are up to in other active places such as Central and Eastern Europe, Central America, China, and Southeast Asia. BTW, have you checked out the Adobe Groups site yet? The list of groups is quite international.
