SXSW Interactive can be overwhelming. With 30,000 registrants and hundreds of sessions to choose from how do you take it all in? The first step once you've picked up your badge is to not do it alone. SXSW is truly about the convergence of people from all over the world bringing their energy and ideas to Austin. You came here to be a part of it. Why not begin with meeting others who are here for their first time and start making great connections right away! Meet Up facilitator Sweet John Muehlbauer has been attending SXSW Interactive since 1997 and will be giving tips and tricks to make the most out of your first year.
