Creative Developers Summit
5 June, 2020
The Creative Developers Summit is the premier annual event for anyone who creates or implements custom software solutions for creative professionals. The Summit is the place to meet, share, and learn about our industry’s tools, resources, and direction.
While The Creative Developers Summit is sponsored and developed in collaboration with Adobe, it is an independent event, run by, and for, developers, DevOps and IT professionals who build and support extensions that integrate with Adobe Creative Cloud.
Thursday, June 13, 2019
Our 2020 agenda will be announced in January. (The following agenda items are from our 2019 event in Seattle.)
- 9:00–4:00 pm: Workshop: “A Guide to Building CEP Extensions.”
Note: This workshop is not covered by a pass for the Friday Creative Developer Summit. To attend this tutorial, you must purchase a Thursday pass to CreativeProWeek and register ahead of time with Kris Coppieters. Breakfast and lunch is provided. For more information about this workshop, see this post on Rorohiko.com
- 6:00–7:30 pm: Drinks happy hour, hosted by Adobe, at the hotel lobby bar.
- 7:30–9:00 pm: Creative Wow! Come see and/or share software demos from around the world. Do you have a software challenge that you’ve been working on in your spare time? Or some feature, tool, or service that you’ve developed that is just so cool you have to share it? Come show it at the CreativeWow! reception, Thursday night. The rules are simple: You have 5 minutes to fire up and demo your stuff in front of an audience of your peers.
