The InMobi team had a great time at #OTA11. Without a doubt, it's one of the best hackathons in the UK. I think it's the first time that I've ever presented in a stately home's "music room".
As well as sponsoring the coffee, we were on hand to help developers out with our new Android and iOS SDK.
We handed out a tonne of schwag - including lanyards, promo codes, and screen cleaners. Our InMobi-branded iPhone beer-bottle-openers were in hot demand - so much so that we had to separate these two reprobates 😉
Highlights, for us, were seeing Lyza Danger (yes, that is her real name!) talking about how to relax when designing mobile web sites. Remember, designing for the mobile web is hard - but you don't need to make a meal of it.
We had a great discussion about mobile security - and whether mobile phones could break Roman encryption.
The physical Enigma recreation was a joy to behold.
Finally, a big congratulations to the team behind Fanyrd - they won our prize of one thousand dollars of ad spend.
Use it wisely, guys!
We're really looking forward to doing it all again next year!
