After a number of false starts, we are a “go” for Over the Air 2009 – the sequel to last year’s hugely well-received Over the Air mobile developer event. We will be holding the event over the 25th and 26th of September (Friday and Saturday). Once again, we will be featuring a number of sessions on different technology / development (and now art / design) topics, with a focus on mobile. Once again, the event will be free for attendees and we expect between 300 and 400 attendees over the 2 days. Once again, people will be working overnight on mobile prototypes and hacks and once again there will be an awards ceremony on the second day to reward the most creative and exciting work.
I am working on putting together the schedule right now and on this I need your help. If you would like to run a session at Over the Air, please take moment to fill in our session suggestion form (http://bit.ly/ota2009session). The sessions will be 55 minutes in length and while the focus of the event is on mobile development, we are also accepting sessions on user experience and design and we are putting together some sessions on mobile art including (hopefully) a mobile film festival.
If you’re not in London and you don’t think you can make it over but you know someone who might be interested in running a session, please feel free to pass this on to them (or indeed to blog / tweet about it). I am also trying to drive awareness of the event and since this is a “grass roots” event, we have a very limited marketing budget so any help getting the word out would be greatly appreciated.
