  3. 3. "One of the most important things on show at OTA was not in a specific tool, hack, or presentation, it was that when creative people are given toolboxes & told to have fun, (a) they will and (b) there’s every chance that what comes out will actually be genuinely useful. Promoting that spirit of hacking and improvisation in the community is the real success of OTA” (Ewan Spence, Forbes) Participants collaborating in the Hacckathon Bean Bags and Keynotes in the Main Hall What are we hacking? Mobile apps, mobile web, mobile devices, prototyping platforms such as Arduino, mBed & Raspberry Pi, wearable technology, robotics, AR & VR …everything and anything, with a focus on connected devices and “things.” Celebrating Creativity Show & Tell of the Hackathon entries LEGO Mindstorms donated for workshops & awards Give-aways and Marketing Materials 3D Scanning & Printing shared with attendees Over the Air Friday, November 25th 9:00 - 10:00 Registration & Coffee 10:00 - 11:00 Welcome & Keynote 11:00 - 18:30 Workshops across 4 rooms 55 min each / Hacckathon launches 12:00 - 13:00 Lunch 18:30 - 23:00 Dinner & Drinks & Lightning Talks 23:00 ....

  4. 4. Over the Air 8 Years of Over the Air We launched OTA to encourage creative collaboration and foster learning in the mobile developer community. First held at Imperial College London, and then the fabulous Bletchley Park, OTA is now at a unique new venue in Shoreditch that still keeps that grassroots, community festival atmosphere for which we have become well loved. We are proud to have attracted an amazing list of Keynote Speakers over the years - people who share an inspirational message of how the world of tech is shifting, where it’s all going and how developers & designers can make an impact. Not a sales pitch in sight.

We consistently achieve female representation amongst both participants and speakers of at least 40%, and are not resting on our laurels. We actively reach out and invite a wide range of people who are typically under-represented at tech events, and in keeping with that have committed to both the Hack Day Code of Conduct and the Diversity Charter. All are welcome!
