MAX Masters

Each year at the Adobe MAX conference, session attendees vote on their favorite speakers—and the top names are invited back to speak at future MAX events. We’re proud to announce that 10 of the top 22 speakers this year, or “MAX Masters,” are lynda.com authors.

We work hard to choose authors who are not only experts in their field and passionate about their subject matter, but are engaging teachers as well. We’re glad Adobe MAX audiences enjoyed their presentations as much as lynda.com members do!

Check out our training from these authors and see for yourself why they’re MAX Masters:

Published by | Friday, November 6th, 2009

This week, eight lynda.com authors and other talented industry speakers gathered in Washington DC for the MOGO Media conferences Photoshop Live (November 2nd & 3rd) and The InDesign Conference (November 4th & 6th).

Mordy Golding, Jan Kabili, Lesa Snider, Ted LoCascio, Michael Ninness, Derrick Story, Anne-Marie Concepcion, and Michael Murphy were all in fine form teaching an eager audience at the U.S. Naval Heritage Center, located just off the Mall in downtown DC. If you were in attendance, you know this was an excellent opportunity to get to sit and listen to some inspiring instruction, go on an evening Photo Walk with Derrick Story, and eat pizza while Michael Ninness gave an awesome three and a half hour (by demand!) session on InDesign. If you missed this show, be sure to check out other MOGO conferences and seminars.
