We’re just one day away from the largest creative conference ever. Adobe MAX kicks off this Tuesday at 9am PST – it’s all online, spanning across the globe with 56 hours of continuous content. And for the first time ever, it’s all totally free.

Hopefully, by now you’ve registered and curated your session schedule. If not, there’s still time to do that now. But while you wait anxiously for the goods to go live, we highly recommend you take a moment to familiarize yourself with everything we’ve got planned for the event. We’ve got keynotes, tons of sessions and Sneaks — and there’s so much more to MAX this year.

Don’t miss out — make time to explore all the following areas of the event:

Networking and social
