Adobe MAX 2020 is a free event for everyone who wants to attend, and registration is open as of today. Those interested in signing up for Adobe MAX can do so on the Adobe website.

Special guests will include actor Keanu Reeves, filmmaker Ava DuVernay, photographer Annie Leibovitz, and recording artist Tyler, the Creator.

Those who register will be entered into a sweepstakes to win a free MAX t-shirt and can begin crafting a schedule for virtual events they want to attend. Registering also provides access to instructor files and presentation downloads and an opportunity to engage with Adobe product experts.

A free t-shirt I can get behind… paying for Creative Cloud, not so much.

As far as I'm concerned, Adobe an get bent. I worked for them for over a year back in 2008-2009 and they wouldn't even give employees a discount OR time off to attend MAX. On top of that, their prices are insane. No way will I ever "subscribe" to their overpriced crap; the only truly good thing they make is Photoshop and thankfully there are now plenty of alternatives to it (like Pixelmator). My job (contract) ended because I was the last American developer on our team; everybody else was in India. Their Indian CEO was moving all development jobs to India. Conflict of interest?

”is a free event for everyone who wants to attend...”

So if I don’t want to attend, is it still free?

I wonder if we're going to find that these events are more effective as virtual events and it it will stay this way after the pandemic recedes. "Open to everyone who wants to attend" seems like quite an advantage and putting together a massive in person conference is a nightmare to manage.

CES is a different matter, where you actually want to see hardware in person, but software conferences seem to be just fine online.

Nothing beats networking in person. I’m sure it’ll be great but I really miss going to conferences.

I can’t wait for Tyler the Creator to teach us all about Adobe.

They go to great lengths (maybe?) it seems to bring in a few high profile celebrity names but then skip bringing in a really good personality to interview them. I heard last year it was super cringe-worthy anytime a celeb was on stage.
