The Adobe Ed Leader’s Institute

The end of July marks the time when Adobe hosts the Ed Leader’s Summer Institute. This is a week packed full brainstorming, sharing of ideas, product insights, research results, and professional development. Not to mention meeting some amazing thinkers. The schedule starts at 9am (7:30 for those seeking certification) and runs usually until around 10pm throughout the week!

As Adobe invitees, AELs are given sneak peeks at the products in development, and sometimes given the opportunity to weigh-in on their usefulness and practicality. Due to the non-disclosure AELs are under, I can’t discuss what I have seen so far, except to say that more pleasant surprises await Adobe users in the future.

I’ll be presenting on optimizing Flash for mobile delivery. The video of the presentation should be available in a few weeks on the Adobe TV Ed Leaders Channel.
