I’ve just registered and grabbed my 2013 Adobe MAX badge. As I was staying in line waiting for my turn, I realised that this is actually my 7th Adobe MAX conference.
For me it all started in 2007 when I went to Adobe MAX Europe in Barcelona. Back then I was an engineer working on Flash Builder. Adobe gave me a ticket but I paid for the flight and hotel. And you know what? It was totally worth it :)
Seven years later I still have the same excitement. Although I know most of the things that will be announced, the show (like the keynotes and sneak peaks) always surprises me.
And lastly, the thing that makes this conference so special for me is the people I came to know, from literally all over the world. With some of them I’ve become friends. Since my first MAX when I only knew five people it seems like a life time. These people add to the cozy feeling I have here at MAX.
Have a great MAX if you are around. Hope to see many of my friends in the next three days!
