'''''We talk a lot about "community" in the open source world. But what does that mean? How do we keep our communities healthy? As other communities have started to learn from the way open source communities work, what can we in turn be learning from them?'''''
The [https://at.govt.nz/bus-train-ferry/bus-services/link-bus-service/ LINK buses] loop around the city anti-clockwise.  There are three routes all at a reasonable price:
+
* City LINK - Red, $0.50, every 7-10 minutes.  This goes up and down Queen St.
+
* Inner LINK - Green, $2, every 10-15 minutes.  This goes around the CBD (Central Business Area) and out to New Market.
+
* Outer LINK - Orange, $2 to $4, every 15 minutes.  This goes up and down Queen St.
+
=== Buses going further ===
+
There are many other buses that go out to the suburbs, see the [https://at.govt.nz/bus-train-ferry/ Auckland Transport (AT) website] for more details. They have an online [https://at.govt.nz/bus-train-ferry/journey-planner journey planner] to calculate which bus services you need to catch, from where, to get to your destination.

== By train ==
+
'''When? Tuesday 13th January 2015'''
Cash payments are no longer processed on board the train, so you will have to purchase your ticket before you get on a train. See the [https://at.govt.nz/bus-train-ferry/train-services Auckland Transport (AT) website] for more details. The nearest train station to the LCA venue is Britmart, which is 1.348kms away, or 20 mins walk from the OGGB, located at the bottom of Queen Street.
+
'''Where? The University of Auckland, New Zealand.'''
== By ferry ==
+
There are several ferry operators available in Auckland, and you will need to locate the appropriate ticketing office for the service you wish to use. See the [https://at.govt.nz/bus-train-ferry/ferry-services Auckland Transport (AT) website] for more details. The nearest ferry terminal to the LCA venue is 1.6km away, or 23 mins walk from the OGGB, located at the bottom of Queen Street, beyond Britomart, and out onto Quay Street.
+
== By taxi ==
+
There are many taxi companies available in Auckland, and you can hail a cab right off the street, walk to your nearest taxi rank, or call and book a cab by telephone. Some taxi companies allow you to book online, some have smartphone apps, and there are independent apps as well, that aren't tied to any particular taxi company. Then there's [[wikipedia:Uber_(company)|Uber]], which also has a presence in Auckland.
+
  
CCTV cameras have become compulsory in taxi cabs throughout NZ since 1 August 2011, so expect to be under surveillance at all times in your cab.

=== Parking at venue ===
+
There is lots of (Auckland University) day parking in the same building as the conference.  [https://linux.conf.au/wiki/LCA_FAQ#What_parking_options_are_there_at_the_Venue.3F See the FAQ] for details.
+
  
However there is basically no "all week" parking for those driving in from out of town for the whole conference and wanting to leave their car somewhere for the whole week of the conference. The limited "student parking" that the residences have is all taken by summer students already (confirmed by Auckland University accommodation team 2014-11-17). All the surrounding streets are time limited parking at least during the day. There is no known "rent for just one week, at a week rate" parking buildings/locations nearby.

Inspired by the [http://www.communityleadershipsummit.com Community Leadership Summit] run each year before [http://www.oscon.com/ OSCON], Donna Benjamin will convene CLSx at LCA to bring together community leaders, organisers and managers and the projects and organisations that are interested in growing and empowering a strong community. We invite the leading minds in community management, relations and online collaboration to discuss, debate and continue to refine the art of building an effective and capable community.
  
If you are planning on driving from out of town your best option is probably to park in one of the outer suburbs (outside all the parking restrictions) at the start of the week, then take public transport back into the centre (for the university). Possibly near where a friend, or extended family member lives, so they can check on your car periodically; if you don't know anyone in Auckland maybe you can make a friend on the LCA2015 chat list? :-)

CLSxatLCA.jpg

We talk a lot about "community" in the open source world. But what does that mean? How do we keep our communities healthy? As other communities have started to learn from the way open source communities work, what can we in turn be learning from them?

#clsXlca

When? Tuesday 13th January 2015 Where? The University of Auckland, New Zealand.

NOTE: You need to be registered to attend linux.conf.au to be able to come to the clsXlca miniconf.

What is clsXlca?

Inspired by the Community Leadership Summit run each year before OSCON, Donna Benjamin will convene CLSx at LCA to bring together community leaders, organisers and managers and the projects and organisations that are interested in growing and empowering a strong community. We invite the leading minds in community management, relations and online collaboration to discuss, debate and continue to refine the art of building an effective and capable community.

As an open unconference-style event, everyone who attends is welcome to lead and contribute sessions on any relevant topic.

The Community Leadership Summit began in 2009 in Portland, Oregon, USA, and has grown to be a key fixture on the open source event calendar. CLS was conceived and is organised each year by Jono Bacon. He is now Senior Director of Community at XPRIZE, and formerly community manager for the global Ubuntu community and author of The Art of Community by O’Reilly.

Jono started the summit as a first step in helping community managers and leaders to define and refine their work, share knowledge and make connections in a vendor neutral way. And now, CLS is going global. CLSx events are local CLS style events that happen in locations around the world.
