MAX is the annual Adobe keynote event. At this event designers and developers meet up to discuss what is going on in the industry. Moreover, MIX is a great spotlight to showcase cool features of the latest Adobe applications and methods. We have collected some of the keynotes that we found worth watching, maybe you will like them too!
Just a note: this post is in no way sponsored by Adobe. We just like what they do and think they deserve some attention. Also note that some videos discusses more general design and development ideologies, not necessarily coupled to Adobe.
