Many thanks for the shout out to my old post as Vecna from Channel 9 in 2015! Their discussion was the absolute highlight of the year for me!

As a new attendee I'll be blogging my thoughts too - I always bring a power strip with me to conferences - it is a good way to make friends....apart from those you trip up ;-)
I'm debating whether to bring my Lenovo p50s and/or SurfacePro 3 as the latter is way lighter but frankly the battery life sucks on both devices. How prevalent are the power sockets normally or what do you normally use for battery pack for your pc's - i'd have thought a portable battery pack would be pretty heavy and unportable.

Does anyone have recommendations for a portable laptop battery bank that can be taken on the plane? There are a couple of 50,000mAh on amazon but it looks like they are too big to go on the plane per FAA recommendations (https://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/headquarters_offices/ash/ash_programs/hazmat/passenger_info/med...)
I'm looking to power a Lenovo P50s and/or a Surface pro 3 and was looking to see if anyone has some personal recommendations for what they use already.

I would also add to his 'Taking Notes' recommendation that you look at the 'Trip Report' function when you build your schedule via MyIgnite - it exports all your chosen sessions into a Word document.
Networking opportunities are endless, don't forget you to take a look at the meetups available at Microsoft Ignite this year. With the majority of these hosted by MVPs, expect a lot of interaction and lively discussion in these scheduled meetups!
Check back on the Microsoft Ignite blog for news and more tips - lots to share in the next 30 days!

It's a good thought. I've been to two MS conference in Orlando, and the rooms always have outlets in the walls; just get there in time to pull up a chair. I always bring a power strip so I can share it. Plus that way I can stay plugged in the whole time.
