Adobe Live 2007 Review: Very short

Adobe held an event to showcase their new creative suite 3 products this week: Adobe Live. It was held at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London. I attended today’s session ( Wednesday 6th of June).

This was a good event. The Demonstrations were well demonstrated, the hands on training were well taught. Adobe staff are highly enthusiastic about their company and products. And their enthusiasm for the products they were highlighting was infectious.

The only downside was that there were too many people, it seems the hands on training sessions were the most popular, it was based on a first come first served basis. Which meant if you weren’t among the first 20 or so people in the queue, you wouldn’t have been able to go along with the training session, and would have found yourself either sitting on the floor or watching from the sides. Where really you want to be involved and be following along with a computer.

Things I would say to look out for, and which I noticed were being highlighted a lot was the Apollo Application which enables you to build cross operating desktop applications (currently in Alpha). and also Flex (a nice little app that I was very impressed with, also open source so check it out), you can find these all at the Adobe Labs.

I recommend this event, it was free so great for those of us on a budget. If there is one in your area, definitely check it out!
