What are the Themes this year?
Although the workshop programme is largely defined by the community in terms of the session proposals they submit, we do have a few over-arching themes we’ll be throwing a spotlight on this year (read more here):
- Opening up the Smart City
- Beyond Hactivism
- What’s up with Wearables
- Next-Gen Mobile Web
So, is this MY kind of event?
Over the Air is an event that defies easy description. It’s a celebration of creativity. It’s a festival of all things hackable. It’s a place where attendees can learn about technologies, trends and techniques. It’s a sleep-over. It’s a two day party. It’s an event where practitioners of creative and technical disciplines can come together to learn from each other.
It’s about recognizing software development as a creative discipline. It’s an opportunity to build new relationships. It’s a space where you can build cool stuff and show it off to an appreciative crowd. It’s all these things. And by the way, it’s free.
We promise the following: if you attend, you will learn about stuff you didn’t know about before, will have the opportunity to meet and collaborate with people you haven’t met before, will be inspired, and possibly amazed. By the end of the day Saturday, you will definitely be exhausted. We’re not saying it will change your life, but we’re not saying it won’t either.
