Aaron Junod’s recent post on “Packing for TechEd” got me thinking about sharing my own list, and advice, too.
I've been to 9 TechEds (Wow! This is the 10th for me!), and I've always packed too much. I always forget about the number of shirts we get, or ones I buy in the MS Store, so I usually end up having brought a couple that I never get to wear. Plus, this is my 2nd TechEd as a Microsoft employee, and our choice of uniform is rather limited. (I have two blue MS Employee shirts, and I have to wear them each day of the conference. Maybe I'll buy a third while I'm there, just to freshen things up a bit.)
So.. here's my advice:
What hints/tips do you have?

One additional thought: You can usually count on the attendee bag they give you being big enough to fit most laptops, so you shouldn't have to worry about lugging your own bag around. Just use the one you get.

Please, oh please, make sure you have sunglasses on... and do not stare directly at my skin. You WILL go blind.
