Adobe Prerelease Programs
Adobe Prerelease Programs are your chance to experience, evaluate and influence upcoming products & technologies from Adobe within a smaller, more focused user environment. Prerelease Programs facilitate a symbiotic development process allowing Adobe to share products in the development stage to gather early feedback. In the process you get a chance to shape the upcoming products and adapt to the new products faster.
Multiple engagement channels are available Prerelease participants at Adobe:
- Access to download Prerelease software/technologies and technical documentation
- Ability to report bugs & request features for the Prerelease software
- Access to the Prerelease User Forums for sharing ideas directly with Adobe product teams and other like-minded folks of the product’s community
- Opportunity to participate in various product-related surveys
A Prerelease program is an endeavor to engage the real users of the product – YOU – early in the development cycle of the product, to listen and learn from you on how the product is working for you.
