Over the Air is a grass-roots mobile developer event that is completely unique in the mobile industry calendar – it is free to attend, covers the cutting edge of current mobile development (as opposed to glossy future-speak or sales-pitches), and is a great place to meet others in the community. The workshops allow attendees to really roll up their sleeves to tinker with new platforms, operating systems, APIs and SDKs and tutorial sessions feature real business cases and hands-on experience. Attendees are invited to stay overnight so that they can work on ideas, apps and widgets on the fly, to be entered into various competition categories and demo’ed on the second day – in true hack-a-thon style. It’s a great vibe of bean bags, learning & collaborating, and all the gadgets that you care to goggle at.
