Adobe CF ACPs listed

Wonder who all the Adobe CF ACPs are? Here you go.

Besides notifying them individually today by email, Adobe today has posted the list of new and renewed Adobe Community Professionals (ACPs, formerly "Experts", aka ACEs). They appear on the blog of Adobean Liz Frederick.

I don't know if I'd ever seen a listing like that, and while her entry has all the ACPs across all products, I wanted to take a moment to point out the names of the CF ACPs.

Their list mixed in new and renewed folks in the one list, identifying which were new. As long as I'm repeating the list separately, I wanted to list it first recognizing those who were renewed (to thank them for there ongoing contributions), then listing those who are new (to welcome them to the fold!)

Update: Well damn. Literally just after I posted this I saw a tweet where Liz indicated that her list mistakenly left a few names off. I've updated the list above, but in case anyone comes here after seeing the RSS feed or email notification of this entry when I first posted, the updates are:

Jeff Coughlin (new)
Marc Esher (new)

And indeed, if there are any other notices of changes mentioned anywhere, please do let me know.

Finding out more about the ACPs

And if any of their names are unfamiliar, realize that they may make their contributions in ways and places (or perhaps countries and regions) in which you may not participate.

I will note that at least the old list of "Community Experts" was offered here with links to their Adobe Groups profiles. Perhaps in time a newly named page (with links and bios for the new folks) will be made available.

Renewed as Adobe Community Expert...er, make that "Professional"

Like many others announcing today, I just got word that I have been selected again as what used to be called an "Adobe Community Expert", but today has been renamed the "Adobe Community Professionals" program.

Ah, well, as Shakespeare (kind of) said, "a rose by any other word smell just as sweet".

I'm just grateful to have been renewed in the program. I love doing all the things that were among the considerations for the selection, whether it's running the CFMeetup online weekly CFUG, my CF411 repository of over 1,000 tools and resources of interest to CFers, speaking at conferences, writing articles, writing in the CFWACK8 and 9 books, contributing to many mailing lists and forums, and more.

And I have still more resources yet to come. Besides the conference speaking (like I the first one I just announced earlier today) and new articles already in the works, I also have plans to create some entirely new resources focused especially on CF troubleshooting that I will announce in coming days/weeks.

We have a great CF community, and I offer my congrats to all my fellow new and renewed ACPs. I also offer my thanks to those who may not have been renewed (or chose not to renew) but have also contributed so much to the community.

Thanks also to Adobe for offering the program of recognition. Of course, we do it out of love for the Adobe products (in my case, CF), but the recognition and benefits are certainly appreciated. Here's to a great 2010!

Got my Adobe Community Expert (ACE) designation today...thanks, Adobe!

I was delighted to learn today that I have been designated an Adobe Community Expert (ACE). Many know the program as the segue from Team Macromedia, and my readers may remember that I was a member of that program until April 2003 when I...uh...took a sabattical. :-)

Anyway, I'm back in the program and very honored. (It may take a few days to get the listing on the site.) I look forward to continuing to contribute to the CFML and broader Adobe community.
