Are You Ready for #DF12?

Dreamforce is two weeks away. Are you ready?

Dennis Moore just posted this practical list of suggestions on the Enterprise Irregulars blog:

  • Sit on the aisle in the general sessions – you may get in Marc @Benioff’s keynote!
  • Bring your own backpack so you don’t get your bag mixed up with 50K+ others.
  • Bring an extension cord with multiple outlets (and an appropriate adapter for your nation).
  • Plan an extra five minutes for walking. Better make that ten. Or fifteen.
  • If you’re driving in, carpool. You’ll have interesting things to talk about when stuck in traffic.
  • You can watch most of the keynotes on monitors throughout Moscone, in comfort and while discussing with colleagues.
  • Bring a couple of Granola bars (or your favorite alternative) for when you get stuck without a chance to get a meal.
  • Comfortable shoes. Loose-fitting and dark-colored pants (for sitting on floor). Layers.
  • Don’t try to follow #Dreamforce or #DF12 on Twitter. Your head might explode from the volume. Follow @mkrigsman and @rwang0 instead.

On the last point, I think Mark and Ray are great and do agree with following them (and a few others). That said, I think it’s worth checking in on the #DF12 feed periodically to get the pulse of  what’s happening at the event and get  real-time updates on keynotes and individual sessions.

I posted some resources on the Informatica Perspectives blog on what promises to be “the cloud computing event of the year” and have seen some great posts on the same topic since (see below). Salesforce has also been posting quite a few promotional videos. They’re clearly looking to set new attendance records for the conferences 10th anniversary.
