What is the Creative Developers Summit and who is it for?

This year’s Creative Developers Summit will be on Friday, June 14, in Seattle, at the end of Creative Pro Week. Creative Developers Summit is for anyone who creates scripts, extensions, plugins, add-ons, or custom applications for Adobe Creative Cloud. Although Adobe sponsors Creative Developers Summit, it was originally created by the developer community for the developer community.

Many Creative Pro Week events can be attended virtually, but because of the sensitive nature of the information being shared at the Creative Developers Summit, nothing is streamed and all attendees are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA).

New pre-event meetings with Adobe

We’ve worked with the Summit organizers to add additional 1:1 meetings with Adobe on Thursday, June 13. These meetings will be held on the mezzanine level, and do not require a Creative Pro Week pass.

Many of our talks on Friday will cover UXP, but Thursday is your chance to talk individually with Prerna Vij about your use cases and individual questions:
