How to Attend Adobe MAX Conference for Cheap

A legal way to get more than 80% off the registration price

Three years ago, I was calculating the cost of attending JavaOne conference: http://java.sys-con.com/node/187608. Thanks to the crisis, the conferences got cheaper, but are stil not affordable for many software developers. I’d like to offer you a legal way to get more than 80% off the registration price at Adobe MAX that will take place next week in Los Angeles. But you have to move fast! It’s easy:

1. Today: enroll into a cheapest class in your local community college to get a student ID.

2. Tomorrow: register for Adobe Max for $199 at the following Web page: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/edu/max2009/.

3. Sunday: arrive to LA.

4. Find me at the conference (I’m nice looking and friendly guy wearing black T-Shirt with white letters FARATA) and say, “Thank you, Yakov for saving me about $1200!” You can easily find me at 12:30PM on Monday at the Community Pavilion where I'll be hosting a BOF "Enterprise Development with Flex".

Sorry, Adobe. Please don’t invalidate my pass for sharing this little trick.
