May News of the Month:
Follow our upcoming calendar closely as we will soon be adding a number of new webinars for introductory training on FrameMaker 12, RoboHelp 11 and other products.

Adobe has been active at several conferences in the recent weeks. Adobe TechComm was the highest level sponsor for STC Spectrum in Rochester, NY in April, the longest running STC regional gathering which has been held for over 50 years.

In early May, Product Evangelist, Maxwell Hoffmann represented Adobe in his home base of Portland, Oregon, as a featured speaker at the innovative ‘WriteTheDocs’ conference. You may view a recording of the presentations made by all the speakers including Maxwell Hoffmann at this link: NA 2014 (Note: this conference is scheduled to be held in Berlin in July, click here for the details; we highly recommend it!) This was followed by several remote presentations to various STC chapters, as well as a Product Evangelist live presentation at the local Williamette Valley STC chapter.

In May, Adobe TechComm kicked off STC Summit in Phoenix with a half-day "Adobe Day" thought leadership event featuring Kapil Verma, Bernard Aschwanden, Marcia Riefer Johnston, Matt Sullivan, Kevin Siegel and Joe Welinske. You may view a photo album of this event on our Facebook page!

Adobe was the diamond sponsor of STC Summit in Phoenix, where the product line was presented by by Vikram Verma, Kapil Verma, Kevin Siegel, Matt Sullivan and Maxwell Hoffmann. We observed a noticeable growth in the number of young attendees at the Summit and a huge increase in the overall number of attendees and booth traffic.
