[marketing] Fwd: [lca-announce] lca2011 - Registrations are now open
I think the LCA is worth going to, but it is especially worth attending for locals. OpenOffice.org has previously attended, in 2009, when it was in Hobart. The event is focused on developers, and they tend to benefit most from it. In Hobart—which may have been unique—the event was not marketing nor business specific.
Unfortunately, we do not really have such a strong presence in Australia as before. But, let's see.

> Good news everyone!
> The lca2011 organising team are delighted to announce that

> With the official opening of the registrations for lca2011, those
> wishing to attend the world's best Linux conference can benefit from
> generously discounted Early Bird prices. These will be available till
> the 8th November, or until sold out.
> "After open discussion among the lca2011 organising team, we've
> arrived at competitive fresh prices for lca2011, taking special care
> to remember students", said Shaun Nykvist, lca2011 Director. "lca2011
> is really shaping up to be another linux.conf.au to remember. From the
> new innovative Rocketry miniconf to our impressive Keynotes and the
> strong but broad range of relevant presentations, there is something
> for everyone. There are technical sessions for those who really want
> to delve into the deeper areas of linux and open source software, and
> there is also the less technical presentations for the end users."
> Professional - 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 such things as:
> * Attendance at the Professional Delegates Networking Session
> * 1 free ticket to the Penguin Dinner
> * Listing as a Professional Delegate
> Hobbyist - 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.
> Student - This discounted rate is reserved for College or University
> Students. lca2011 offers this rate as a form of investment in the
> future of the free and open source software community.
> Register now for linux.conf.au 2011 and take advantage of the limited
> number of Early Bird Registration places!
