For the fifth consecutive year, Adobe is proud to sponsor the Congressional Art Competition, an event that gives high school students across the country the opportunity to have their artwork displayed in the halls of the U.S. Capitol building.
Adobe was honored to host Congressman Adam Smith (D-WA) recently at our Seattle “Fremont” office. Representative Smith met with a number of Adobe employees during a townhall meeting, including many of his own Washington 9th Congressional District constituents.
On May 17th, the House of Representatives passed HR 2227, the Modernizing Government Technology Act of 2017 (MGT Act). The legislation, sponsored by Congressman Will Hurd of Texas and Congressman Gerry Connolly of Virginia provides for a critical investment by the federal government in IT modernization by authorizing $500 million over the next two fiscal years for this purpose.
On May 17, Adobe was thrilled to join many of our industry peers at the 2017 ITI STEM Show and Tech Show. We brought examples of some of our latest technology, including a futuristic virtual reality (VR) experience powered byAdobe Primetime, and tools for state of the art content security and digital rights management (DRM).
I was fortunate enough to host a delegation of congressional staffers organized by Software.org: the BSA Foundation, last month at Adobe’s San Francisco office to chat about the vital role that technology plays in education.
