Become a Sponsor

Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, we have always been able to cover the costs of putting on OTA. This allows in-house developers without conference budgets, freelancers, students, bootstrapping start-ups and anyone else enthusiastic about mobile, web & software development and hardware hacking to attend.

Itʼs a unique opportunity to not only gain kudos, gratitude and great brand exposure, but also to roll up your own sleeves and get directly involved with the developer community.

Donate a Prize

The Hackathon element of the event concludes with an Awards Ceremony for the winners of the various Hackathon competition categories and bespoke Hackathon Challenges – and we love to give away fun prizes. Think in terms of devices & gadgets, prototyping hardware, programming books, or value-in kind for access to software and platforms.

Support in Kind

At an event like this, there are always lots of little costs – printing posters, buying administrative supplies, and so on. If you’re not in a position to offer financial support, but can cover some of these smaller details at the event, then your help would be most appreciated!
