What can I say, I'm old and set in my ways. I still prefer programming in assembly, too.

Hey Max, 

You travel like a socially maxed out teen-ager. I'm an old f*rt by comparison. Just my laptop, notebook, chargers and a pair of noise cancelling headphones.

And I cannot tell you how happy that makes me feel (LOL)

Did you check out that link that DrFPGA posted about The Woz and his backpack .... very interesting!!!

@DrFPGA: Nice case from Design West!

They were giving iPad cases away at Design West? I missed that ... but it really doesn;t matter, because I can't see me ever not using my leather iPad case from Saddleback Leather ... this just "Stands Proud in the Crowd" :-)

Good grief Max, sounds like you need a steamer trunk to lug all this stuff around. I travel very light, and borrow what I need from people like you!!

@DrFPGA: Your post made me remember this one...

Thanks for sharing -- that's great -- I once met "The Woz" (see Who Woz that masked man?) -- he's a real nice guy

@RichQ: Over at Microcontroller Central, one of our bloggers (Adam Carlson) has written about the portable development toolkit he keeps in a backpack...

I just bounced over to MCC to read this article -- very interesting -- thanks for sharing

@RichQ: I have a rolling computer case instead of a backpack...

That's "So 20th century, my dear!" :-)

Max-

My backpack has much less stuff in it but there are some similarities...

1) Laptop with power brick and power cord

2) iPAD and power cord (Nice case from Design West!)

3) Headphones (and Microchip wireless speaker!)

4) iPod

5) Books (about as much weight as the laptop. Usually library books- we have an excellent library system here in Bellingham WA)

6) Pens and note pad

7) Phone and power cord

8) Flash drive (just one- 8G is enough for me)

9) Diet Dr Pepper Cherry (In outside pocket. Must have pre-security check-in drink.)

10) Trail Mix 

 

Anyone else have any favorite travel "comfort food" items?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
