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!
