Registrations for LCA2010 have officially opened with a set of Early Bird prices to encourage delegates to get in early and book a place at the leading free and open source software conference of the southern hemisphere.
"Early Bird Registrations are an excellent way to book your place at LCA2010 and save money," said Susanne Ruthven, Co-Director of LCA2010.
"As soon as you see the great line up of speakers and talks in our schedule, we know you will want to get in quick and take advantage of a limited number of Early Bird Registration places."
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:
* Attendance at the Professional Delegates Networking Session
* 1 free ticket to the Penguin Dinner
* Extra goodies in the swag bag
* Listed as a Professional Delegate on our website
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 concession rate is reserved for Secondary or Tertiary Students. LCA2010 offers this rate as a form of investment in the future of the free and open source software community.
