We are pleased to announce that Nokia and Microsoft are Event Sponsors of OTA13

Nokia and Microsoft are really excited to be sponsoring Over the Air this year. It’s a brilliant event for designers, developers and technologists to gather in a great environment and collaborate on bringing some fresh and creative mobile ideas to life. With technology and UX experts from Microsoft and Nokia, we’ll make sure the right resources, tools and services are available for free to anyone building for our platform. We’ll have some great prizes such as Xbox’s, Lumia smartphones, Windows tablets, JBL NFC Speakers and Monster headphones for the best apps created at OTA that use Nokia API’s and Windows Azure developed for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1 platforms. Finally, we’ll have some expert/hands-on sessions on various Nokia and Microsoft developer topics for anyone new to the platform. We’ll be posting a resource page on the OTA website soon where you’ll be able to download tools, SDK’s, resources etc so that you can get set up prior to the OTA event.Any further information on Nokia and Microsoft involvement at OTA can be directed to Riaz Ahmed, Developer Evangelist, Nokia UK (, @TheRealRiaz on twitter).
