Tour Dates 2011 and Facebook Live Q&A

Howdy all!

As spring/summer approaches, it’s time again to hit the road. This time, aside from being joined by my ‘other thirds’ (ie, Terry White & Greg Rewis), we’ve augmented our trio to become a quartet, adding the services and on-stage presence of Paul Trani, our dedicated Mobile & Flash evangelist here at Adobe. We’re crossing the globe (as per usual) but we’ll have some friends/colleagues stepping in here and there, simply because the experiments to clone us were unsuccessful ;P

But before I list tour dates, we’ll also be hosting a live Facebook Q&A session on Monday, April 11th at 9am PDT. If you’ve got CS5-related questions, this is the place to ask them! Check it out HERE

The Masters Tour, The Pharaohs Tour, Firenze & Back in the USSR

Hello once again, my friends. Well, I think the title really says it all! Over the last 5 weeks, we’ve been touring Northern Europe, Eastern Europe, US (for AdobeMAX) and we’re now currently in Cairo (for the first time!) presenting a modified version of the Masters Tour, appropriately titled The Pharaohs Tour. Following this, we’ll once again go our separate ways, as Terry heads off to Brasil, Greg visits parts of the US and Japan, and I’ll finish out my (touring) year in Amsterdam at AUGXL and a series of Video Seminars in Moscow.

In any case, I’ve been fairly lazy with the blog, so I figured I could at least upload some random pics from Giza (where we got some amazing shots of the pyramids) and a few “outtakes” from my brief visit to Florence with my dear friend and perpetual Adobe Evangelist, Rufus Deuchler.

CS5 Masters Tour Hits the Road

It’s that time of year again, and over the next 3 months our Creative Suite Evangelist team (consisting of yours truly, Greg Rewis, and Terry White) will be hitting the road with our workflow-based seminar series, The Masters Tour. Over a period of 5-8 hours (it differs between cities) we’ll present new assets (many of which we’ve created) and showcase a complete workflow across all of the applications in CS5 Master Collection. We’ll start with some raw media (images, video, blank CSS templates, etc) and build up everything from an interactive document/ePub, to a website, to an AIR app, to an HD Blu-ray disc.

We’ll be covering a multitude of locales in the first go-round (and I’ll be solo-presenting some video-specific seminars along the way), so be sure to check your local Adobe Events pages for details. In the meantime, here’s roughly where I’ll be (and where the team will be) during September and October…
