I recently covered an Introduction To Adobe Game Developer Tools. With excitement and momentum (created primarily by Stage3D and its Starling Framework) we see proactive, positive marketing by Adobe for gaming and the Flash Platform. The community hopes this will help keep the Flash Platform in the minds of business leaders and developers as a viable technology for new projects.
Adobe recently announced the details for the annual Adobe Max conference. Thankfully, in 2013 we see a focus on gaming.
Adobe Max 2013
Adobe MAX 2013 will be at the L.A. Convention Center & Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE on May 4 – 8, 2013
(From Adobe Marketing:) Adobe MAX is all about creativity and expressiveness. If you create, you won’t want to miss MAX. Designers, developers, strategists, video professionals, photographers, and more all come to MAX to exchange ideas and inspiration. Together with industry pros and visionaries, you’ll learn about the latest technologies, techniques, and strategies for delivering your best creative work. Come to MAX and explore how creativity is changing the word and what part you have to play in that change. And every full conference MAX pass includes a one year membership to Adobe Creative Cloud*
