Adobe Developer Day – Bucharest

April 29th, 2009 Comments off

Next to my desk sits a crazy lady named Magda. A few months ago Ben Forta, the “father” of all evangelists at Adobe, told us he would like to pay us a visit. So the crazy lady I mentioned thought: “If Ben is coming to Bucharest why not have him speak with the local Flex community? And if he speaks with the local Flex community, why not have all the evangelists speak with them? That might attract some people. And if these people come, maybe we can move the AIR team to leave their coding for a day and also talk with them. And if there are so many interesting people there maybe not only the Flex and AIR community will show up but also other people that are interested in our technologies. … and if … what the heck let’s just make a BIG Event and invite everyone!”

So she did that! And it’s going to take place on 19 May at Hotel Intercontinental. Here is the schedule (it might change a little but not too much):

Ah … still more, Digby Horner, the man who was behind the InterAKT acquisition and the opening of the Romanian campus will be there too. And also some guys from management, they call themselves “upper management”. And they are open for questions about our campus too.

I hope you are convinced by now to book 19 May for Adobe Developer Day.
