Ticket types


The Professional ticket is the standard full inclusion conference ticket. 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 ticket include attendance at the Professional Delegates Networking Session, attendance at the Penguin Dinner, and a Swag Bag.


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.


This is a concession rate ticket that is reserved for High School, College, or University Students. offers this rate as a form of investment in the future of the free and open source software community. As part of the registration process, a valid student ID card or proof of enrolment must be presented to the onsite registration desk. Any Student who cannot provide this will be required to register at LCA2019 as a hobbyist by paying the difference in fees between the Student rate and the Hobbyist rate.
