Moved my discussions with you off to another page so you can use this for your talk page. I suggest watching the 2 pages above for changes. The 2nd page will be where I leave links for you to put up on the wiki. I don't think I'll need more sub pages but if I do, I'll add to the above list.

==Is there a Code of Conduct?==
+
Yes. The short version is "Be Awesome". Refer [https://linux.conf.au/cor/code_of_conduct Code of Conduct on the Conference Website]. All attendees are expected to adhere to the code of conduct, with the goal being that all attendees will enjoy themselves.
+
  
==Can I get a one day ticket?==
+
:Sorry Lin, I think we're going to have a problem here. I think it is best if you and I and a third party, such as Cherie, have a face-to-face meetup urgently to discuss some boundaries. [[User:Augur .|Augur .]] ([[User talk:Augur .|talk]]) 05:21, 15 December 2014 (AEDT)
No. Tickets are only sold for the entire five days of conference. We strongly encourage people to attend all days to not miss out of talks, social events and the "hallway track".
+
  
==What are Miniconfs?==
+
== Carpooling ==
The first 2 days of the conference (Monday and Tuesday) are devoted to Miniconfs. They are each devoted to a specific topic and run by organisers (rather than the main conference) for a whole day in one of the lecture theaters. Except for those that require special equipment you can attended and of them as part of your registration and switch between them during the days. Schedules and more details of each Miniconf is published on the website.

==I'm not a programmer, should I attend?==
+
I'll be coming in from Avondale. Haven't decided how yet, but will check in re carpooling closer to the conference.--[[User:David Moore|David Moore]] ([[User talk:David Moore|talk]]) 05:53, 14 December 2014 (AEDT)
Yes. The majority of the attendees are not fulltime programmers. Each session at the conference has 5-6 talks and these are arranged so that there should be something for everyone in each session. If you are unsure what to attend the talks that are predicted to be the most popular will be sceduled towards the left of the programme in the largest rooms.
+
 
+
== Can I get assistance with my VISA application ==
+
As a volunteer run conference linux.conf.au in unable to offer a letter of invitation to our speakers. Under NZ immigration rules as speakers are not being paid to attend a professional conference you should be able to attend under a visitors visa.
