#SourceCon Attendees: What Do You Carry With You At Events?

SourceCon spring is here! When people see me at events, they often ask what I’m carrying in the humongous backpack I seldom part with. I took a photo this morning so I could glance at it at the end of the conference to make sure I wasn’t forgetting anything (which is a common problem). In case you were wondering, here’s what the SourceCon editor totes around during events :).
