Join Us At MacIT/MacWorld 1/31: What The Creative Cloud Means For IT

Headed to San Francisco next week for the MacIT/MacWorld event? Here are a few tips:

1) Ravens jerseys are not so popular at the moment in SF.

2) You shouldn’t leave town without going to the Mission and having a Papalote Mexican Grill burrito drenched in their amazing salsa. Or your mouth will resent you.

3) Adobe’s session on Thursday 4:45pm – 5:30pm will be THE best session of the entire conference.*

*Okay, so I just looked at the lineup and that statement might not be completely accurate. Chip Pearson from JAMF’s keynote is likely to be great. Oh, and I didn’t see that the likes of Rich Trouton and Randy Saeks are also speaking Thursday. Those guys are always good. So I guess I can’t even state that we’ll have the best session that day. Man, looks like on our time slot we are up against a DNS session that looks pretty good. And “iPads on Planes” sounds cool. Although seems like they missed their chance to call it “iPads on a Plane.” So okay, so let’s say the we will have one of the top 5 sessions at the conference during the Thursday 4:45pm – 5:30pm time period. Yes, I feel confident about that statement. Although I bet there might be some compelling conversations out in the hall during that time period.

In all seriousness we are really excited to be participating in the conference as a sponsor and getting to engage directly with the Mac IT community. Our session was initially entitled “Managing Adobe Software: Taking IT To The Next Level” but I’ve taken that Keynote presentation and I’ve Control clicked on it and chose Move To Trash. That’s right, I’ve scratched the whole talk so that we could bring you the latest info around managing the Creative Cloud. The new talk is called “What The Creative Cloud Means For IT.” What? You don’t have to manage the Creative Cloud yet in your environment? Well one great thing about conferences like this is the opportunity to stay ahead of the curve, to be the first on your block with the scoop, the 411, the…oh you get it. Plus we will have an unveiling of something new. And there will be prizes. Prizes!

And this year I will be joined on stage by the new Product Manager of the IT Tools, Karl Gibson… all the way from Dublin, Ireland. That is 5091 miles/8192km. Traveling 7689 miles/12,372km we have our QE Lead for the IT Tools, Rahul Baiswar, all the way from Delhi, India. And coming all the way from San Jose, California (wait, that is just a train ride away) is Eric Wilde, who is not only my fantastic guy and manager (it’s review time btw) but Eric is also my partner in internal advocacy for the Enterprise IT admin. We are all excited for the event and can’t wait to see old friends in the community and meet new ones.

Here’s the details of the season. Hope to see you there. Did I mention there was going to be prizes?

AAMME 1.2 Preview at MacTech Conference

We don’t have a breaking news section of the blog. We should because we have some news hot off the press. (Is Adobe allowed to use a hot metal printing process method metaphor?) Okay, drum roll: We are pleased to announce that AAMEE 1.2 will be previewed at the upcoming MacTech Conference in an IT Track session!

And wait, there’s more! If you have been waiting to the last minute to decide if you are going to the conference then file this next bit of news under “good things happen to those who procrastinate until the last week before the conference and then get rewarded with a special offer.” Readers of this blog (or if you got here from a retweet) get a special discount for the MacTech Conference through this Friday 10/29/10. You can save up to $200 with an option of a bundled Apple Certification Exam, or a $100 cash discount off the $899 registration price. Space is limited, so this is first come, first served. You must use this URL for the special pricing and extended offer period:

The conference is being held in Los Angeles November 3-5. If you haven’t looked at the updated MacTech Conference lineup it has gone from awesome to awesomer, which isn’t a word. “Awesomer” should be, so I would have the proper adjective at my disposal. There’s over 40 sessions, check them out:

There is also lots of other cool events going on during the conference. I am a space geek so the evening trip to the Griffith Observatory should be cool and I am definitely checking out the iPod Touch controlled Planetary Exploration Rovers.

Hope to see you there!

Macworld 2011

A number of contributors to this blog will present at Macworld 2011. This is an opportunity to meet us face-to-face and ask any questions you might have. Last year was a very productive event. We met many of our customers or IT specialists who try to deploy and manage Adobe software. You all provided lots of good input on what direction we should take our solution.

Here’s a link to the conference session information:
