The 24 Hour hack-a-thon

One of the key features of Over the Air is the in-event competition, which gives you a chance to show off the clever and fun ideas you’ve been coding and hacking away at over the course of the event. We’ve had some really great entries over the years, and look forward to seeing many clever innovations again this year.

As well as kudos, glory and general street cred – we also have some lovely prizes for our competition winners courtesy of our very generous Sponsors and Supporters.
