I'm about to book air tickets. I am a little worried about travelling the distance if there are no points of focus apart from lectures and talks. Anyone like to reassure me that it will be worthwhile?
I can't decide for others what will be worthwhile :)
Jonathon has already replied with a summary about LCA, but I would just like to add what we have planned for the OOo Miniconf and other LCA activities, see:
http://marketing.openoffice.org/conference/miniconf/programme.html http://marketing.openoffice.org/conference/miniconf/monday.html http://marketing.openoffice.org/conference/miniconf/tuesday.html
Information is still coming in, and of course I need plan B, plan C, etc :)
During LCA proper, if you stay for that, there is the opportunity to participate with a:
- lightning talk http://www.linux.conf.au/lightning.php
- poster http://www.linux.conf.au/posters.php
- BOF (Wed 20 April 6pm-10pm) http://www.linux.conf.au/bofs.php
Depending on your level of registration, you may attend the "Professional Delegates Session" on Thurs night, and the "Conference Dinner" on Friday night.
Also, I'm sure that if you know who is going, you may arrange to meet during the week, in and around the lectures and talks.
