Merry Christmas
Hello Everyone,

Hope you had a wonderful November and have an even better December! Here's a summary of what we had to offer to the Tech Comm community in the last two month. In case you, a friend or a colleague missed out on anything useful or important, we hope this will serve as a ready reference.
News of the month
November/December News of the Month:
Our final newsletter of the year recaps content and resources we shared in both November and December. Despite the short, holiday month of November, our AdobeTCS team and special guests created some very potent "how to" and "thought leader" content that is well worth re-visiting.

Our AdobeTV videos have an average length of only 90 seconds, so you have a host of topics you can swiftly view with our updated list. We concluded three 3-part webinar series and two 5-part webinar series in December. Through these recorded webinars you can cover some thought-provoking approaches to "Crossing Boundaries" or do a deep dive into advanced features in FrameMaker, RoboHelp, Captivate and other aspects of Tech Comm Suite.

Happy Holidays! We look forward to seeing you "live" in our upcoming webinars to be posted in January!
