==What to bring to linux.conf.au==
  
To make the most of your experience at linux.conf.au as a student, you may wish to consider the following tips;
+
* Laptop, phone, chargers etc - most people bring a laptop, tablet etc. Free WiFi is available. Many Delegates enjoy hacking, coding and developing together at linux.conf.au.
 
+
* Sunscreen, sunglasses and a water bottle - Geelong, although coastal, can have high summer temperatures. The conference venue is a block from the beach, feel free to bring swimming gear.
* Many Linux and open source companies actively recruit at linux.conf.au. If you're nearing graduation, be sure to spruce up your resume or LinkedIn page, or GitHub account and get in contact. There is usually a [[Birds_of_a_Feather_sessions_(BoFs)]] session for Jobs - referred to as the 'Jobs BoF'.  
+
* Clothes and toiletries - the conference venue is a block away from a Westfield shopping centre, so you'll be OK if you forget anything. Remember to bring any medication you may need.  
* Many of the Speakers at linux.conf.au are in the academic community - check the [http://linux.conf.au/schedule Schedule] for more information.
+
* Identification and if international, your passport - for registration purposes, we may need to see identification, and if you're a student, we'll need to see your student card. Geelong has plenty of beer, and in accordance with liquor laws, you may be asked for ID to be served alcohol.
* Follow the conference social media to build relationships with other Delegates.  
+
* Cash or card - you will likely have some incidental expenses during the conference. There's an ATM (Westpac) at the conference venue, and most nearby venues take card.  
 
+
* An appetite - Geelong has a magnificent range of eateries and restaurants all within walking distance.
