SAUG History

The Sacramento Adobe Users Group began as the Sierra Macromedia Users Group. Founded by Gordon Clarke, the group met for years in Auburn, California, catering to Flash, Dreamweaver and Fireworks users.
In 2002, when Adobe purchased Macromedia, the group changed its name to the Sierra Multimedia Users Group to maintain its acronym and domain name. The group’s focus remained much the same as before, while expanding to cover Adobe’s product line with Photoshop and Illustrator.
With new management and a changing demographic, the group moved its meetings to the north suburbs of Sacramento around 2004. Meeting in Rocklin for several years, the group changed its name to the Sacramento Adobe Users Group in 2005. In 2011, the decision was made to relocate┬áto Sacramento in order to serve a larger market. SAUG now holds its meetings at the Art Institute of California – Sacramento.
