‘Who’s that tIp trapping over my bridge?’
Back in my day Trolls lived under a bridge and scared the Billy Goats Gruff as they crossed the bridge to get to the other side for the green.

Is it Time to Stop Wasting Your Money on Tech Conferences?
Barely a week passes in Europe without a conference, expo, trade show, summit or talk. There are more than a few people who like, professional Hackathon competitors, spend a good part of each calendar year, carry a souvenir tote bag and wearing a lanyard at a convention centre.
