Tickets and accommodation for linux.conf.au 2017 are now available!

Early Bird Discounts are available on the first 165 tickets we sell,
or until October 31, whichever comes first.

linux.conf.au 2017 is being held in Hobart, Tasmania from Monday 16
January through to Friday 20 January 2017. To find out more about our
ticket options, please visit https://linux.conf.au/attend and for

All our tickets provide access to all five days at the conference, and
include complimentary morning and afternoon tea, as well as a fully
catered lunch on each day of the conference. Our limited-edition
linux.conf.au 2017 t-shirts are available until December 1, and we’ll
include a free t-shirt with every ticket sold before then too.

Our Professional Tickets ($999 regular price, plus a $150 early bird
discount) are our all-access pass: as well as your conference
attendance and complimentary t-shirt, your ticket includes access to
the exclusive Opening Reception and Networking Breakfast (this year’s
PDNS) on Monday morning, and a free ticket to the conference’s
signature Penguin Dinner on Wednesday night.

For those of you who want to support the community even more, our
Fairy Penguin Sponsor ticket ($1999 regular, plus a $150 early bird
discount) comes with all the benefits of a professional ticket, but
we’ll also put your company’s logo on the conference website, and
mention you during our conference plenary sessions.

For those of you attending out-of-pocket, we offer discounted tickets.
Our Hobbyist ticket ($449 regular, plus a $100 early bird discount) is
available to the general public and represents the best price that we
can make available. Hobbyists can purchase a seat at the Penguin
Dinner for an additional cost.

Our student ticket ($160 regular price only) is further discounted,
for those who can provide a current student ID card on arrival at the
conference. Our student tickets are offered below cost, as a form of
investment in growing the next generation of the Free and Open Source
Software community.

Additional tickets to the penguin dinner are available for $95 for
adults; further t-shirts are available at $25 per shirt.
