If you’re a regular (or even occasional!) reader of this blog, and Seattle is within affordable traveling distance, you should consider attending the Creative Developers Summit on June 14.

We’re serious! Register right now. Here’s a code for $100 off: ADOBEDEV.

This one-day summit, held annually at the end of Creative Pro Week, is for anyone who creates scripts, extensions, plugins, add-ons, or custom applications for Adobe Creative Cloud, IT managers that support creative teams, and/or anyone interested in automating workflows for Creative Cloud apps, especially (but not limited to) InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, or InDesign Server.

This is your chance to meet some of the world’s top experts in the Creative Cloud extensibility community, as well as regular authors (and occasional guest authors) of the Adobe Tech Blog. Whether you’re learning how to build a CEP panel for the first time or you want the latest information on UXP, you need to be at this event.

Important: Because of the sensitive nature of the information being shared at the Creative Developers Summit, all attendees will be required to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA). That means attendees can find out about the future of ExtendScript and our APIs before the general public — and simultaneously provide important feedback.

Here’s our list of speakers so far, which is still subject to change:

Community organizers

  • Chuck Weger, Barebones Living
  • Kris Coppieters, Rorohiko
  • Jim Birkenseer, Premedia

Adobe speakers

  • Ash Ryan Arnwine, Lead Technical Evangelist for the Adobe Creative Cloud Developer Ecosystem
  • Erin Finnegan, Community Engineer, Creative Cloud
  • Kerri Shotts, Developer Advocate & UXP Product Manager
  • Mike Zahorik, Senior Manager, Business Development, InDesign
  • Minson Chen, Senior Manager, Platform & Partner Marketing
  • Prerna Vij, Product Manager, CEP
  • Adobe engineers, TBD
Chuck Weger, Kris Coppieters, Jim Birkenseer, Ash Ryan Arnwine, Erin Finnegan, Kerri Shotts, Mike Zahorik, Minson Chen, and Prerna Vij

Some of our talks will include updates on UXP and the future of Creative Cloud extensibility; CEP, ExtendScript, and ExtendScript Toolkit; topics on InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects; and how to connect your work with users. We’ll also do a reprise of the popular Adobe AMA (“ask me anything”) session, where you can bring your questions directly to Creative Cloud developer platform and ecosystem staff.

If you’re in town for all of Creative Pro Week, there will be a special celebration for the 20th anniversary of InDesign’s 20th on June 12 during lunch.
