I've started looking at the class schedules for each day at https://rootstech.org/schedule-info/session-viewer/ and these are the classes that I most want to attend on Thursday, 6 February:
8:30 a.m. - Thursday General Session, Keynote Address -- Ree Drummond, the Pioneer Woman; and Annalies van den Belt of D.C. Thomson Family History. (Hall E)
10:30 a.m. - Tom Jones: "Can a Complex Research Problem Be Solved Online?" (Ballroom B)
10:30 a.m. - Ryan Heaton: "GEDCOM X" (Unconferencing Room 1)

I have these classes already starred in my RootsTech 2014 App on my iPhone.
Of course, there is no guarantee that I will attend any of these presentations (other than the keynote session). I usually hang out in the Media Center and write a blog post or two every day at RootsTech, and also walk through the Exhibit Hall several times a day asking questions and learning about new resources. Several of them will be on the Live Streaming, and I may catch those later at home. But I have good intentions!
I will highlight my Friday class choices in the next post in this series.
Are you attending RootsTech 2014? If so, which classes do you want to attend?
