Mozilla, in partnership with the National Science Foundation, KC Digital Drive and the Kauffman Foundation would like to invite you to "Hacking the Gigabit City" on March 22-24 in the Google Fiber Space in Kansas City.
Gigabit networks might just be to the 21st century what railroads, electricity, highways and telephones were to the 20th. That future is here in Kansas City, home of broadband and barbecue. Following previous events in San Francisco and Chattanooga, we invite you to Kansas City to come hack the gig.
At "Hacking the Gigabit City", we'll dream, build and hack together on innovative apps that can make a difference in people's lives. Join us for a weekend of authentic BBQ, talented people and a unique opportunity to hack on Kansas City's 1 gigabit-per-second Google Fiber network.
Teams are forming and projects created here could grow into submissions to the Mozilla Ignite Challenge with $250,000 of seed money, mentorship and other resources to help get off the ground.
Apply now for a travel scholarship or simply register for the event. And please tell your talented friends.
PS - Wondering what a gig's good for? Check out the project pitches for the $150,000 in Development Round 2 to see what teams are already building.
