MAX is coming up soon

Just wanted to remind everyone that Adobe MAX 2006 is coming up on Oct 24-26, which is just under two weeks away. Registration ends on Oct 16 (onsite registration will still be available). ColdFusion users should definitely attend this year as a) its in Las Vegas and b) My session on Flex FDS and ColdFusion integration is a must see :-)

The keynote sessions promise to be pretty interesting this year. Day 1 will cover the "Adobe Engagement Platform", which should be something that any CF developer should probably understand. Not because ColdFusion is at the center of it (think Flash and PDF) but because Adobe will be talking about this a lot in the next year and it will help the CF team if you know what it is when we start talking about how CF fits in to all the pretty boxes. :-)

The Day 2 keynote is going to have lots of Adobe mobile info (yes, I sometimes get tired of hearing about flash on phones too) , but also the MAX awards, which I think are always neat.

The Day 3 keynote will be the sneaks session we have had in many past DevCon/MAX shows. The ColdFusion team has some stuff we want to show at this one. Can't say much more about that, but you can bet that the other groups in Adobe will have some real cool stuff to show too.

I am presenting my session twice, Tuesday at 4:15pm and Wednesday at 10:30am. I will also be manning the Adobe booth on Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning, plus I am sure I will be loitering around at other times too. You wont be able to miss me or the other members of the CF team as we will be wearing yellow bowling shirts (yikes!) when we are not wearing the official Adobe uniform for MAX.

Hope to see you all there!
