Takin’ it to the Streets…of the USA

As the title suggests, I’m proud to announce that the Creative Suite Evangelists (myself, Greg Rewis, Paul Trani & Rufus Deuchler) will be hitting the road for a series of CS5.5 Evolution Tour-themed seminars in U.S.!! It’s been nearly 6 years since we last toured the United States (as a team, that is) and we couldn’t be more excited to bring Creative Suite 5.5 to the Adobe User Group/Adobe Camp communities.

Here are the cities and registration links. Several of the cities will also feature additional speakers and activities at the venues, so please check the links for details…

9 August 2011: Austin, TX @ St. Edward’s University
23 August 2011: Cleveland, OH @ Botanical Gardens
31 August 2011: Hollywood, CA @ Moviola
1 September 2011: Denver, CO @ Casselman’s Bar & Venue

A big thanks to all of our Adobe User Group managers/Adobe Camp managers for putting all of this together.

Hope to see you there!
