== Agenda ==
+
Speakers will often need adapters to connect their devices to room projectors. Sometimes they won't have one that suits the setup at LCA.
 +
Delegates often bring adapters with them to LCA. Sometimes they might be able to help out speakers who don't have the one they need.
  
Let's start by spending half an hour discussing the problems and ways of solving them, during the discussion people are encouraged to play with software on their devices and do web research.
+
If you've brought along (an) adapter(s) with you, please list them here along with the contact method you're most likely to be monitoring during the conference so that a speaker who needs it can contact you quickly.
  
By the time the Linux Australia AGM starts I would like people to be working on installing and testing various software. People who are there just for the discussion can then attend the AGM. I believe that coding is more important than voting as the people standing for office are all good.

The Adapter Exchange

A place to for those needing adapters and those having adapters to… connect

Speakers will often need adapters to connect their devices to room projectors. Sometimes they won't have one that suits the setup at LCA. Delegates often bring adapters with them to LCA. Sometimes they might be able to help out speakers who don't have the one they need.

If you've brought along (an) adapter(s) with you, please list them here along with the contact method you're most likely to be monitoring during the conference so that a speaker who needs it can contact you quickly.

If you're a speaker who needs an adapter, please list it here. You never know.

Don't know which adapter you need?
