Organized by Kansas City IT Professionals, Hack Midwest brought together students and local professionals to create connections and improve the local developer community.

Hack Midwest 1

If the camaraderie wasn't enough reward, there were also plenty of prizes for developers to win, including a collection of Lego sets.

Hack Midwest 4

Here are the projects that used the Rdio API:

  • Racio — Site
    Compete against your friends and prove your music knowledge. Questions included: name the song, name the artist, and guess the release year. This project used the Rovi API for music metadata. Winner, best use of Rdio API.

  • R2DJ
    Crowdsourced playlist with the ability to vote on tracks with your Pebble watch.

  • Team Chausage
    Let the party be the DJ with this collaborative jukebox. The team planned to use the Simplify API to let you attach money to your votes, giving them more weight, but ran out of time.
