LAdobe is pleased that after ten years….we’re finally making our South Bay debut! And we’re doing it with one of our most popular presenters ever, Photoshop expert and book author Stephen Burns.

We’ll be at El Camp at 2150 Park Place in El Segundo (right off Rosecrans), which is a very cool coworking space designed to look like a campsite. We think you’ll really like our location. There is a parking garage across the street and we are currently working on special parking rates for the evening.
