Sun Microsystems Australia Regional Delegate Program

WARNING: Penguins Gathering

We're trying something new here, and with the support of our RDP sponsor, Sun Microsystems Australia, and the regional Linux User Groups (LUGs) around Australia, we're going to make it work!

Sun Microsystems Australia

As part of its ongoing support of the Linux movement, Sun Microsystems will sponsor one delegate from every Australian state and territory to attend the Linux.conf.au 2003 in Perth. Under the Sun(tm) sponsorship package, the chosen delegate will receive a full Professional Registration for the conference (including a ticket to the Conference Dinner) and free travel and accommodation for the duration of the four day conference.

We've selected a set of Linux User Groups in each area, and given them a brief on what we'd like them to do. They will either run a competition, raffle, or some other method of determining who to give this package to.

If the winner from each state has already registered, then their money will be refunded to them.

The package includes:

  • Return economy air ticket from local airport to Perth
  • Accommodation at the on-campus lodgings (Currie Hall) for the duration of the main conference (excluding the mini-confs that may be organised)
  • Professional Registration for Linux.conf.au 2003

How do you find out how to get involved so you can have a chance at this? You'll need to contact your nominated Linux User Group in your state or territory:

  • Australian Capital Territory: Canberra Linux User Group (CLUG)
  • New South Wales: Sydney Linux User Group (SLUG)
  • Northern Territory: Alice Springs Linux User Group & Darwin Linux User's Group (ASLUG & DarLUG)
  • Queensland: Home Unix Machine Brisbane User Group (HUMBUG)
  • South Australia: LinuxSA
  • Tasmania: Tasmanian Linux Users Group (TasLUG)
  • Victoria: Linux User of Victoria (LUV)
  • Western Australia: Perth Linux User Group (PLUG)

Competition closes November 30 (or when the Linux User Group in your state decides). Results to be announced here and on the lca-announce mailing list around December 7th.

Please check back later on this page for links to each state's RDP if it is not linked to from above.

Once again, this has been made possible due to the kind support of Sun Microsystems Australia.
