Headed to a Conference this Weekend
I've been reading up on articles of how to make the best of conferences and perhaps the best that I have come across is this one from ProfHacker at the Chronicle. Among the things it suggests are to make sure to participate the panels, to use Twitter to interact with other conference attendees, to mingle, to introduce yourself, to stay at the conference hotel and to plan your networking ahead of time. Of course, I'm also looking forward to seeing the sights in a city I've never been to before.
What tips do you have to make the most of attending conferences?
