Los Angeles Bound… MAX Here I Come

Finishing up some last-minute packing before heading off for Adobe MAX tomorrow morning.

Saving a few dollars (I think… the price of gas might actually prove otherwise) by driving instead of flying. I like the convenience of having a car at the conference. Provides a little bit of freedom for getting out and about.

I’ll be picking up Sean Corfield at 9am. It’ll be nice to share the ride as it’s a pretty monotonous drive down I-5. Saturday night I’ll be hitting a Dodgers game with Scott Stroz and Ray Camden, which should be a good time. I don’t follow baseball, but I do enjoy getting out to a live game. I haven’t done that since I went to a Diamondback game back in AZ.

Sunday morning, Scott and I are heading over to ESPN Zone to watch the Giants vs. Chiefs. Scott and I both grew up in NJ, and are both Giants fans. Getting to watch the game together is going to be a blast. If you’re at the conference and want to meet up, we’ll be there for the early game (10:00am). Depending on who’s playing and who shows up, we may stay for the late games as well.

Sunday night is the Community Summit. This is my first year as a User Group Manager, and I’m really looking forward to meeting other managers and Community Experts.

Monday the conference starts in earnest. I expect that most of the time I’ll be in the ColdFusion Unconference area. Ezra Parker and I are going to be doing what we can to help Ray make sure everything runs smoothly.

With the exception of the Max Bash on Tuesday night, evenings are open. I’m sure both open evenings will fill up. Scott and I talked about the possibility of a trip to Fogo de Chao in Beverly Hills. Maybe Monday night? Any takers?

If you’re going to be in town, come by the Unconference area and say hi. I look forward to seeing you there.
