Adobe MAX, recently rebranded and refocused away from a developers conference into a full-on creatives conference, kicks off on Monday and we are expecting a big news out of Adobe during the Keynote at 9:30 AM Pacific Time. Mike Kelley and I will be there live reporting everything as it is announced, but you can watch the live stream online along with us.
Adobe has primed us to expect some relatively colossal news, so it's no surprise how excited we are to get down there. Can't make it for our general sessions and sneak peeks that will explore the creative evolution? Adobe is providing the opportunity to experience some of MAX 2013 live on the web! On May 6 and 7, MAX Online will feature the keynotes streamed live and on demand. Be sure to tune in here at the start of each keynote: http://max.adobe.com/sessions/online.html
The main keynote you should be prepared for is one led by Adobe's Shantanu Narayen and David Wadhwani. That is where we expect to hear the bulk of the product announcements:
Adobe Max Keynote: A Creative Evolution
Monday, May 6, 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. PT
The process of where and how we create is dramatically changing thanks to major advancements in technology, and there has never been a more exciting time. Join Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen, Adobe’s SVP and GM of Digital Media David Wadhwani, and a collection of Adobe visionaries across digital photography, web design, illustration, video and more as we unveil brand new creative workflows and capabilities. We’ll take a look at the present and set our sights on the endless possibilities in our creative future.
There is also a second Keynote on Tuesday morning that will be worth checking out:
Community Inspires Creativity
Tuesday, May 7, 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. PT
Join David Wadhwani, Adobe’s SVP and GM of Digital Media, as he welcomes four incredibly creative minds to explore how they foster creativity and approach their work. You will hear from Rob Legato, an Oscar winning visual effects supervisor; Paula Scher, an iconic graphic designer and illustrator; Erik Johansson, an up and coming photographer and retouch artist; and Phil Hansen, a constraint-based artist that believes limitations drive creativity. We think you’ll leave you with more than a few new ideas to incorporate in your next creative project.
We will be reporting live from the floor in case you can't accomodate the live stream from Adobe and posting wrap-ups at the conclusion of the keynote. That said, make sure to keep it tuned to Fstoppers.com on Monday for everything Adobe.
