UberKit is an Objective-C wrapper made to interface with the Uber API, allowing developers to call the Uber API without requiring users to sign into their Uber account. Calls to the Uber API can be made to request information on available car types, driver location expressed in geo-coordinates, time estimates, estimated prices (including currency conversion when applicable), as well as user account history and activity.
Dwolla, highly innovative payment network, celebrates its second anniversary by hosting a hackathon in its birthplace: Des Moines, Iowa.

Dwolla and co-host, Silicon Prairie News, aim for 50 developers to enjoy the scene and conjure up some disruptive applications utilizing Dwolla's APIs.
