Gigabit Workday

Throughout this year, KC Digital Drive is building and launching two gigabit apps as part of the Smart Gigabit Communities grant (get background here), a year-long event series designed to help us navigate the app lifecycle process, from initial ideation to deployment. The SGC program is managed by US Ignite, our long-time collaborator who is driving innovation in smart cities across the US.

Our Gigabit Workday has four main components:

  1. Gigabit Coworking (10 am - 6 pm)

    • Bring your team to the Google Fiber space for some unstructured work time with other gigabit apps working in Kansas City

  2. Lunch ‘n Learn (11 am - 1 pm)

    • Keynote by Scott Turnbull, technical lead for US Ignite, about the smart city Digital Town Square we are building

    • Panel discussion with Scott, Kate Garman from the KCMO Office of Innovation and Jonathan Wagner, our local DTS technical lead and founder of Big Bang

  3. Office Hours (by appointment)

    • One-on-one project advising with Scott Turnbull, Mozilla and KC Digital Drive

  4. Reverse Pitch / Project Showcase (4 pm - 6 pm)

    • An opportunity for corporate partners and community stakeholders to pitch problems and opportunities; and an opportunity for existing teams to present their current work and appeal for additional help.
