July 21 – 24, 2016
Schedcation 5.0 was in San Diego and since we help power Comic Con, my coworkers and I were comped tickets. It was a beautiful trip and I feel lucky to have the opportunity to bond with such good, hardworking folks.
It was my first time at such an event and I was taken aback by all the cool, nerdy things everywhere (e.g. for sale and also incredible cosplay). Also, by the amount of people. So many people. Maybe too many people, but majority are sincere loving-all-things-nerdy fans. Queuing in lines was mostly painless because the company kept was so good.
I’d recommend picking one thing a day you absolutely gotta do and leave EARLY to get to it. Planning ahead is your friend. That means sleep well, wear comfortable walking shoes, and pack snacks + water.
