How to work with Adobe

Thanks for reaching out to the Adobe Flash Platform team.

As an evangelist, I spend a lot of time trying to connect people outside the company to the right program inside of Adobe. This is often a win-win scenario. As outsiders, however, it can be daunting to find the right program. This blog post is an attempt to aggregate some of the more important resources for external people to work with at Adobe. I will add more as they become available or people can ping me to add them (just use the comment form to add more).

We want to ensure you have what you need to get started with Adobe! Good luck!

This document outlines the key programs and activities you can leverage from Adobe to be successful with our platform.
