When I come to the CSUN conference, I write about every session I attend. When I’m all done with the conference, I make sure I gather up all my posts into one <echo>MEGA POST</echo>. In the past, I felt strongly pulled toward the more technical web track sessions, because I run a web development shop. This year, I sprinkled in some legal and compliance sessions, because the technical stuff doesn’t exist in a vacuum. That, and I find myself being asked to weigh in on accessibility concerns in senior-level conversations more frequently these days.
I may be a glutton for punishment, but whenever I attend a busy conference that has lots of concurrent sessions throughout the day, I try to attend as many as I can…with no breaks in between. This year, I got to 18 sessions, and it was pretty tiring. I think it matters that I get the most “bang for the buck” for attending, and it’s important that I don’t keep what I learn all to myself. So I take notes. A LOT OF NOTES. This helps me stay focused when my mind starts to wander, and it may be useful to others.
I hope you find it useful.
