The WordPress.com crew takes over two floors of classic arcade and pinball games, setting them on free play, opening up the bar, and inviting you to join them. Don't miss Killer Queen, the 10-player arcade game we featured at last year's XOXO. All ages welcome.
Rumor has it that exactly once a year the team at Panic—makers of software and such—throw open the doors of their secretive office, sweep off their rooftop deck, whip up some delicious and fanciful tiki drinks and food, and welcome all the nice people in town for XOXO into their world. Is the rumor true? There's only one way to find out…
Come get a glimpse of the upcoming XOXO Outpost with our friends at Instrument, who open their doors for happy hour, ice cream, and an art showcase curated by PDX Creative Coders. See the works of Church of Robotron, Lumenal Code, C.A.R.D.S., Surya Buchwald, Darius Kazemi, Josh Michaels, Jeremy Rotsztain, and Mike Walczyk.
