Wow that took less time than I thought… So yeah, I’m joining Adobe. Specifically I’m joining Adobe’s Platform Evangelism group. I’ll be working under Kevin Hoyt with the team that includes Ryan Stewart, Lee Brimelow and Danny Dura amongst others and ultimately headed by Ben Forta. So it will take all of my composure to not, you know, break down into an Adobe fanboy in my first staff meeting.
What does that mean? It means that I will be working with the rest of the team to spread excitement about the Adobe Platform Products:
- Flash Catalyst
I’ll be promoting the entire platform, but considering my experience to date, I imagine that I’ll start with a slight focus on ColdFusion and AIR.
However in addition to that focus I will have an overriding goal:
Get Adobe Platform Technologies taught in the classrooms of Higher Ed.
It’s a big goal, and not a trivial challenge. I see a lot of different paths to achieving it. I can’t wait to work with all of you to accomplish it.
And as my first act of Evangelism I will remind you once again that both ColdFusion and Flex Builder are available free to Higher Education. All you have to do is go to one of their respective “freeriatools” sites, fill out a form, and upload a picture of your Academic ID.
