A long time ago the lca2011 team decided to have a small competition to capture the ideas of what people wanted at the next linux.conf.au. We received a lot of responses to this including some very very special requests for things like stickers and cup cakes. However, while we all wanted to have a conference full of stickers and pretty cup cakes and take on board as many other suggestions as feasibly possible, there was one suggestion that the team decided should be taken on board – that was the inclusion of a poster type session. Alec Clews having made this suggestion through the competition website has received a complimentary conference registration including penguin dinner. Congratulations from the team Alec!
There is only 26 days to go till lca2011 officially kicks off! Final decisions on numbers for many of the different events will be made shortly so if you are intend to be a part of an awesome 2011 linux.conf.au please ensure that you have registered as soon as possible – time is now running out and there is a lot planned for lca2011 delegates. A lot of the plans for lca2011 are now falling into place and the team will be even busier in the next couple of weeks leading up to the conference. We have also received some really cool Loongson lemote mini computers which will be given away during the conference – a few more details on these shortly. Most of the goodies for the schwag bag have arrived and are awaiting being packed while we are also testing the Internet connections to the main accommodation venue at Urbanest (straight across the river from the conference venue at South Brisbane).
