Designers and developers of Internet applications competed at a Kansas City event last weekend to help create new applications that can be used on ultra-fast networks.
KC Digital Drive has been working with local institutions and community partners to develop applications that address the needs of Kansas Citians. A “Hacking the Gigabit City” event was held March 22-24 in partnership with the Kauffman Foundation, Mozilla Foundation and US Ignite.
There were 40 teams that competed in this event. Kansas City, Kan., was represented with the Startup Village. Members from Curious Pixel participated that worked on an application to help city planners visualize future community needs.
The winner for the competition won’t be chosen until mid-April. Many long hours were put in by all who competed.
