Creative Developers Summit
8 June, 2018
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 partially sponsored and attended by Adobe, it is an independent event, run by and for DevOps and IT professionals.
NOTE: The Creative Developers Summit community organizers are working with the Adobe Creative Cloud Partner Platform & Ecosystem team to come up with an awesome program for you. We will announce the final agenda for the 2018 Creative Developers Summit as details unfold.
Thursday, June 7
- 12:00–1:30 pm: Lunch roundtable discussions: Adobe & Developer Community
- 6:00–7:30 pm: Drinks happy hour, hosted by Adobe, at the Pelican Bar in the hotel lobby.
- 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.
