So things are beginning to heat up here at LCA2013 HQ, because were
opening early bird registrations in less than five weeks.
The thing is, we know that coming to a great conference like LCA takes
some planning. Sometimes it involves begging your family, and sometimes
it involves sweet-talking your boss. Because we want you to be able to
do both of those things (because we really, really want you to be able
to come and join the party!) weve decided to let slip the curtain a
For your fiscal enjoyment, here is the proposed ticket pricing for LCA2013:
hobbyist early bird $260
professional early bird $650
fairy penguin $1,500
partners program (adult) $300
partners program (child) $250
So, there are a couple of important things you need to know:
First of all, remember that early bird tickets are strictly limited, and
even though we say well keep early bird registrations open until the
end of October, we might sell out of tickets before then. If we sell
out, you miss out, so if you want early bird pricing you will need to
get in as fast as you can after 1 October. Last time linux.conf.au was
in Canberra the entire event sold out, so we do recommend that you dont
leave registering and paying until the last minute. Your ticket isnt
guaranteed until your payment has been processed.
Secondly, you need to remember that these numbers arent set in stone.
If something unexpected happens, we might need to make some last minute
changes. We really hope that wont happen, of course.
By the time 1 October rolls around and we open early bird regos, well
have all the information on the website about what you get with each
ticket. But you already know that a student ticket gets less swag, and
professionals get an extra event and stuff like that. Were not going to
mess with that too much, so you know what to expect.
And one final thing: if you manage to sweet-talk your boss, and your
employer is paying for your ticket, we do expect that youll register as
a professional delegate. Remember, theres better swag in it for you!
See you all in January!
