****** GENERAL TACTICS AND TIPS

How to write, submit and manage grants and CFPs?

:
    * speaking at events will generally get you a free ticket + often cover travel costs

    * sometimes events (especially corporate hackathons!) provide travel bursaries. Spotted:
        * Hack/Make the Bank
        * http://www.joinef.com/
        * [...]

    * you can have them fly you in to a nearby place a week before, do other stuff there, and hang around for a bit more (also see 🔗maps(R/W))

    * [...]
