The Cowtown Computer Congress (CCCKC) was formed in 2008 to create a shared space for local technology enthusiasts to meet, collaborate on group projects, share tools and to support Kansas City's technology community. Kansas City has a rich and diverse technology community, however unlike some major metropolitan areas such as Austin, Texas or the Bay Area there was little structure or leadership. This lack of organization has perpetuated a false perception that Kansas City and the midwest are places for those interested in technology to avoid relocating to, or to leave for the coasts as soon as possible.


We currently meet Fridays in room 115 at DeVry University, 11224 Holmes Road, Kansas City, MO 64131. Meetings start at 7pm and are open to all those interested. If you are interested in seeing what we're all about, come on a Friday to see all the current projects.

NOTE: Be sure to follow us on Meetup to find out what events are coming up and also about alternative locations that we may be meeting at.


A strong community of user groups is a positive characteristic of any technology community. User groups often struggle to maintain membership, promote events and find places to meet. The Cowtown Computer Congress serves as an umbrella organization which can assist in promotion of events and projects and provide a dedicated location to work on projects and hold meetings.

This strong commitment to the development and support of user groups is exhibited in our management structure, with each affiliate organization having a seat on the board of directors which gives them a voice in how the space is maintained and utilized.

Shared Ideals

All members of the Cowtown Computer Congress share the ideals of openness, nondiscrimination, free speech, the sharing of ideas, and unfettered exploration of technology's potential. All those who share in these ideals are invited to become involved, no matter where they are located geographically or their individual background.

We believe that knowledge should be free and accessible, and therefore share and publish what we produce to the community free of charge. Classes and workshops are open to the public, but we may ask for a small fee to help cover our rent, utilities and other expenses.

You can find out about joining CCCKC as a member at . As a 501c3 this is our way to provide quality services to our members and maintain our presence in the maker community.

    "Looked at the Raspberry Pi controllers but they're too light for my taste. I need to control something more substantial and I would just be a beginner doing that but I've been looking at it. I've been looking for a project that would force me to lear"

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
