Adobe Use-a-What?

DCS has begun a special partnership with Adobe Systems called an Adobe User Group. We are now the exclusive resource in the greater Dayton area for Adobe-sponsored meetings, workshops, speakers, and events related to Adobe® Creative Suite® Master Collection. Master Collection includes all of Adobe’s Creative Suite software, so we can cover each of the individual programs or creative themes at our events.

What’s the catch?
