On my way to Ignite!

Enroute! I`m on my way to Orlando as we speak (write). I`m so exited to meet the HUGE community which are present at Microsoft Ignite and can`t wait to meet friends and new people in the community. That said there are mucho to-do this week!

I`m arriving my hotel late Sunday and preparing to head into OCCC EARLY to try to get a space for Sataya`s keynote in The Hub at OCCC.

Game plan!

  • Get my luggage
  • Check in at MS Ignite at Orlando airport (rumors says there is almost no queue there)
  • Grab an Uber straight to the hotel
  • Go to sleep fast
  • Get up early and head directly over to OCCC
  • Enjoy Ignite! 🙂

That said – i have thought about how to store, use and structure all the information and knowledge i get this week.

My plan is to use One Note for taking notes on stuff from sessions and all over – Use Microsoft To-Do to add task that i need to follow up on and LinkedIn for connecting with all the great community people and ofcourse use Twitter to follow the great speakers and people i meet at the conference.

Ignite is 7 days away – it’s a problem!!

Well.. it’s not that big of a problem, or yes it is! There is to many sessions I want to be at at the same time. As a first timer at Ignite this will be alot of fun and i’m looking forward to meet alot of people and learn much new stuff!

So over to the problem, I have added all the sessions i want to experience and i now have up to 8 sessions at the same time at almost all hours theough out the week. So now the work of fixing my schedule for the week. Good thing is that we can watch almost all content on video on demand after the conference 🙂

Even tho its my frist time to ignite, i have some tips!

  1. Arrive early to your sessions
  2. Have some break time between your sessions.
  3. Wear good and comfy shoes
  4. Keep hydrated
  5. Meet people and have fun!

Hope to you at ignite this year!
