SXSW Rookie – Getting Ready for SXSWi Tips

This is my first time going to SXSW and lots of people have been very helpful in giving me tips on the do’s and don’t.  I really want to thank @hectorramos ,  @jpadilla_ ,   @franklogic , and @mhjohnston which are the people that have helped me greatly in my pre-planning.

My first big technology conference was last year in @chirp where I was a bit lost and was very thankful for the great people I met that guided me and made me feel at home.

I am expecting to enjoy SXSW as much as I can. I want it to be a learning experience from a personal and business perspective. It will be a great opportunity to meet as many people I have interacted with online for a while and have not had the opportunity to meet them in person. Overall I want to be able to connect with new people throughout the event.

I have done much less planning that other people I spoken too. I want to have a good balance of enjoying myself and really making the best out of the experience.

I found these following applications other than the official applications which have helped me identify some of my contacts as people planning to assist SXSW interactive.
