Monday, October 5 was the first full day for AdobeMAX. The keynote started late and ran over about an hour. The rest of the day all the sessions and labs were off on their starting times. Sigh. Overall, a lot of great material was covered today. We also got a sneak peak at a new movie (Avatar) which has been created using Adobe products. It is in 3D (you will see a few photos of some of us wearing 3D glasses).
After the day sessions, Bill and I visited the Los Angeles Web Professionals Adobe User Group. Although they normally meet on Thursday night, the moved their meeting to Monday night. Michael Bierman presented on Nokia WRT (and how to make widgets in Dreamweaver). Sidebar – Michael lead the team that developed the Adobe SVG Player browser plug-in in the early part of this decade. After Michael’s talk, we took a break and I then presented on new features in HTML 5 and CSS 3 and gave an overview of some of the ways to work with CSS using Dreamweaver CS 4. I also covered topics like specificity to the group. I believe our presentations were well received as we had a number of questions and positive comments form the group.
I plan to post a summary of the entire week separately. In the interim, enjoy these photos.
