Packing for Dreamforce - Electronics

Before each Dreamforce I go through the debate of, “Should I bring my laptop or should I leave it at home?” Last year, I decided to leave my laptop home and only travel with my iPhone and iPad. I will be honest, I did miss my laptop last year. I have never really brought my laptop to sessions, but where it does come in useful is if I have to respond to an email and it’s going to be a lengthy response, it’s much easier to type on my laptop. The other reason I missed my laptop was after some sessions I wanted to try out a feature that I just learned about, and I couldn’t really do that without a laptop. That’s when I missed my laptop the most.

So, this year I’ve decided to bring the following electronics with me:

  • iPhone – this is my personal phone
  • Samsung S4 – this is my work phone
  • iPad – more for reading on the plane
  • Laptop
  • Extra battery power for smartphones – I have one by Anker you can see in the picture below. It works really well and it’s pink!
  • Headphones – mine are by Bose and I love them.
  • Charging cords
  • Extra lenses for iPhone – I recently ordered these from Amazon, they are supposed to make some really cool effects for pictures taken with your camera.
  • Apps – my necessary apps on my iPhone are – Dreamforce App, Salesforce1, SalesforceA, Google maps, Uber, United Airlines (airline I’m taking). 

I hope you find this helpful. What electronics are you bringing with you to Dreamforce? Is there something missing on my list that you’re going to bring? Tweet your list of what you’re bringing with the hashtag of #DF14COS so you can be entered in the contest, too.

As always, thanks for reading.
