If you're planning on attending BSDCan, bring copies of your books for the signing sessions. If you don't have a copy of your favourite book yet, copies will be available for sale.
What else should you bring to BSDCan? Business cards and a pen! You will meet so many people, it will be impossible to remember them all. Ask for their card, and jot a quick note on the back so you remember who they were when you get back home.
Don't have a business card or the budget to buy some? Make your own which include your name and email address. Either print them yourself on stiff paper or spend a few bucks at a local printer shop. Trust me, you'll be glad to have something to hand out as you meet people.
Which reminds me, I better print off some of my own. See you there :-)
