Monday Evening, Room #180, 9.30pm
It’s gameshow time folks! In the Adobe Consulting Birds of a Feather session, we’re going to facilitate a session in gameshow format – that’s Adobe Consulting versus the rest of the world – with a session called “Adobe Consulting knows everything about Flex, LiveCycle ES and User Experience Design”.
4000 attendees. Whatever! Bring it on!
We plan on a fun, interactive but ultimately spirited and educational discussion that covers all of the above topics – we’ll mix some panel-based discussion that will include the audience and their thoughts, with gameshow rounds, where we’ll pit 20 Adobe Consultants against everyone else in the audience, using a variety of gameshow formats from television shows and radio shows that most of us are actually too young to remember (except George Neill) !
Can we take a topic given by the audience and talk authoratively about it for one minute, without hesitation, repetition or deviation from the topic? If we can, it’s a point to us – if you buzz us out for hesitating, deviating or repeating, you the audience can try and get to the end of the minute on the topic and win the point for YOUR team. But watch out, Brian O’Connor and I can talk for a minute about on just about anything.
Or challenge us to dodge ball; throw questions at us, and if we get ‘em wrong, our team mates are out, but if we get them right, we’re pulling them straight back off the bench. If we know everything about Flex, LiveCycle ES and user-experience design then you ain’t getting any points…and we’ll all be in the game at the end of the round!
And more to be revealed on the night…
In between the gameshow rounds, we hope to run a BOF session as spirited as last year, where what felt like half the development community engaged in a hugely collaborative discussion around the topics of interest.
As Ted Patrick has posted, there’ll be food and beer — round up your evening by taking on the might of Adobe Consulting!
(Note: though strictly speaking we know everything about Flex, LiveCycle ES and User Experience Design, some of our team who know the answers to the questions you ask may not be available on the evening in question. We reserve the right to guru in absentia)
(Note2: If I see any of the Flex or LiveCycle Engineering team in the audience, then Adobe Consulting will file enough enhancement requests to ensure you don’t have a weekend between now and next March. You have been warned)
