Adobe MAX 2013 will be chock full of expert keynotes and presentations, technical sessions and talks, surprise announcements and sneak peeks, evening events and get-togethers, and possibly some freebies. The show is an amazingly intense experience where they really take care of you from start to finish while you soak up all the growth and learning you can.
In fact, most of the 200 how-to and tutorial sessions from the last MAX were recorded and are still available on-demand for free viewing, covering all Adobe applications.
As their website puts it, “MAX is THE event where the fast growing Adobe Creative Cloud community gathers to learn the latest innovations, share ideas, learn competitive advantages, and draw inspiration for their work. We expect over 5,000 of the world’s most influential designers, developers, creative directors, video professionals, photographers, and business minds to attend.”

I’d like to learn from the best, so that I’ll become one of them and teach other people reach their highest!
I am a student, mobile app developer, and a DESMA enthusiast and would really love the chance to attend and improve my networks.
I want the adobe creative cloud! :)
I am a middle-aged System Analyst and my company sent me to attend MAX 2009 mostly to learn about RIA front end stuff (like Flex/AIR) and Back-End (like LiveCycle/AMF) tendencies, directions and emerging things from those days. During those few days at MAX, I was totally amazed with the opportunity to see so many creative things and to know so many creative people. For example, after a keynote where a guy on stage explained the use of some Adobe tools on the making of the Avatar acclaimed movie (textures using Photoshop, effects using AE and so on), the new colleagues around started to talk and explain a lot of things that I never heard of like Motion Blur, Composite, Rigging, Scene Graphs, Alpha Channel, Shaders, etc. (I also learned how Ed Catmull and Alvy Ray Smith invented Alpha Channel and Layers emerged on Photoshop).
Last year I made a Presentation Intro for an event (Photoshop and AE), and this year I started to make another simple and short movie tribute to the Company Sixty Years (storyboard in the works and the score is almost finished – I am not a musician but sometimes you follow the inspiration…). So, to try to express a little of the MAX experience in this little space, I will quote David Mitchell on Cloud Atlas: “Yesterday, my life was headed in one direction. Today, it is headed in another. Yesterday, I believe I would never have done what I did today…” I feel like something important has happened to me. This year I will attend MAX on my vacation (with some saved economies) and I am eager to encounter the creativity, the colors, the effects, the surprise, the innovation and the inventive and nice folks again. Long live creativity, Long live MAX! Good luck to everyone and I hope that will encounter some of you there…
I’d like to go to Adobe Max and soak up knowledge from sessions with Blatner, Brimelow, Brown, Georgenes, Gorman, Green, Labrecque, McClelland, Skinner, Yaiser, Zeldman and many others!
I would love to get in-depth with designing for website and apps. Would love to learn from the PRO’s!
It will be great to add a new tool to my toolkit (skill-set).
Being a Graphic Designer & Working with Adobe for 20+ years I would love to experience the Party!

I would love this chance in a lifetime to attend the Adobe Max Conference to be able to meet and greet the Adobe Creative Cloud community in California and to learn the latest innovations, share ideas, learn more competitive advantages in the creative web world, while drawing inspiration fromthe attendees and teachers, designers, developers, etc. What an advantage I would have. I love the Adobe Cloud and have much to learn.
