The Kauffman Center for Performing Arts is set to host hackathon Compute Midwest (CMW), which is a 2.5-day event happening on November 9 to 11 in Kansas City. What makes this stand out is that the event will be powered by Google Fiber.

CMW has told The Next Web that more than 100 developers will come together at the Google Fiber space to build apps overnight, where they could be up for thousands of dollars in prizes. There are multiple categories to compete in, but CMW should have developers excited to test out the Google Fiber service.

 

Are you headed to CMW? What are you more excited for now? The hackathon itself, or getting your eyes glued on Google Fiber?
