Visit from Adobe Shadow / Edge Inspect Team!

Bruce Bowman, Kristin Long, Archna Panwar, Shawn McKay, Duane O’Brien

Had a super fun meeting/demo/lunch with Bruce Bowman and the Adobe Edge Inspect (aka Shadow) team! Thanks to them for the awesome tools they make for us, and for being so proactive in finding out what users (like us!) want and need from Adobe. I can’t wait to get my hands on the new tools coming down the pike. They are a great looking group – even if they aren’t perfectly in focus. Darn phone!

Visting Students @ Mm

Today we had the pleasure of entertaining some visiting students from Denmark’s Nordic Multimedia Academy (NOMA).

Kristin Long, Alec Reynolds, Andrew Ward, Eddie Monge Jr., Mickey Kay

We assembled some fantastic developers for the students to talk to, pictured above. Topics discussed included interviewing, hiring, staying marketable, freelancing, client relations, budgeting, contracts and continuing education.

It was a great time and the Danes left us with a souvenir ~ THE HOPTIMITST. He arrived in a lovely habitat.

And he was very excited to enjoy his new home at MIGHTYminnow.

Thanks to Tim Ware from Hyperarts for setting it up.
