Adobe MAX 2010: Acrobat X Test Drive Lab

At Adobe MAX 2010, the Acrobat team hosted a 25-seat ‘test drive lab’ where attendees could sit down and try Acrobat X.

Well… now that Acrobat X is officially available – you can also test drive it. Just download the trial version of Acrobat X Pro, the instruction booklet, and the sample files, and then…. ‘start your engines‘.

I’v created a recording – available as a PDF file you can download (it’s big – about 172MB) where I review the content, so feel free to follow along with me.

Hola from Mexico City

Today I am in Mexico City and had the pleasure to present Acrobat X to a group of customers and talk with local news outlets.
The local team has created an Acrobat Mexico facebook page and an Acrobat Mexico twitter account where we saw some great feedback.

Adobe MAX 2009

Registration is open and the MAX scheduler is live. I’ll be presenting a 90-minute lab again this year entitled “I Didn’t Know Acrobat Could Do That!” in response to multiple requests from customers and developers that were unaware of what is possible with Acrobat 9. In addition to this hands-on lab, there will be lots of other Acrobat sessions.
We’re lucky to have Harry Hemus of Dividi Projects joining us to talk about creating rich, interactive PDF documents. Harry has created some very cool presentations, including one for David Gilmour‘s Live in Gdańsk project, and Harry’s story is currently a featured video on the Acrobat home page.

Adobe MAX 2009. I’m going, will you?
