And if you really want to stay on top of things, set up a Google alert for “Dreamforce.”

Active Astro3. Be active on social.
Get the conversation going on Twitter, Facebook, and heck, Snapchat! Use the hashtag #DF16 to throw your voice into the ring and start connecting with other attendees. And be sure to follow and tweet at @SalesforceOrg and @Dreamforce.

Business Astro 4. Replenish your business card supply.
