Fairy Penguin Sponsors
The Fairy Penguin Penguin sponsorship is designed for those who wish to attend lca2012 as a Professional Delegate as well as supporting the conference by contributing financially to lca2012. In recognition of this support, the Fairy Penguin Sponsors logos and links are published on the Sponsors page.
To become a Fairy Penguin Sponsor, simply register as a Fairy Penguin, or email email@example.com for more information.
The Professional rate is the standard conference rate. This rate applies to most people who have their companies pay the conference fees and charge it as a professional development expense, or for individuals who can legitimately claim it is a tax deduction. The benefits of a Professional registration include attendance at the Professional Delegates Networking Session, extra goodies in the swag bag and a listing as a Professional Delegate on our website.
The Hobbyist rate is heavily discounted for free software enthusiasts who are paying out of their own pockets and would otherwise find it difficult to attend.
This concession rate is reserved for College or University Students. Linux.conf.au offers this rate as a form of investment in the future of the free and open source software community. As part of the registration process, a valid student ID card or proof of enrolment must be presented to the onsite registration desk. Any Student who cannot provide this will be required to register at LCA2012 as a hobbyist by paying the difference in fees between the Student rate and the Hobbyist rate.
linux.conf.au would not be as successful as it is, without having a dedicated team of volunteers to help run the conference. If you're interested in spending the week of LCA2012 helping run the conference, please register as a volunteer.
Please see our Volunteering section for more information and to register your interest as a volunteer.
There are a limited number of Media Passes available to media personnel. Media Passes are free of charge, and entitle media personnel to attend LCA2012 with all the entitlements of a Professional registration. Please note, due to the limited numbers of Media Passes available, all Media Passes will need to be approved by the LCA2012 Organisers.
To apply for a Media Pass, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
