Do we need to purchase actual tickets for the main event in order to attend the 19th sprints/contrib summit? I would like to go but I don’t use Django and so I don’t really have any interest in attending the sessions on the other days.

Hey @briantist! No need to buy djangocon tickets.

We are sharing the tickets Platform, but you can pick the Ansible Contributor free tickets without paying for anything else. Let us know if you have any issues with that!

We will make this more clear! Thank you for raising the issue!
