Event Description

Recently, Adobe scared some of us by announcing their leap TO THE CLOUD! There have been concerns, lots of questions, and a few angry tweets and blog posts about it all. But, have no fear; two local Adobe experts can help navigate and explain these changes. Please join us to learn more about the new Adobe product offerings and how they are changing the software landscape.
  • Extinction of Creative Suite
  • The new types of Creative Cloud licensing
  • The Creative "Cloud"
  • Features and benefits of the different licensing models
