Friday 12PM-7PM

A series of social events around town, and an opportunity to explore Portland and meet fellow XOXO attendees.

Friday, September 12

Ground Kontrol Free Play

The Hover 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.

Panic Open House

Exactly once a year, like a modern-day Punxsutawney Phil (if he made iOS and Mac apps), the team at Panic emerge from their home, throw open the doors of its secretive and near-legendary office, and predict if we’ll have six more weeks of summer, in the form of eating, drinking, talking, and meeting all the wonderful people of XOXO.

The Manual Happy Hour

Join The Manual team for some tasty, tasty beers as we celebrate the publication of their fourth issue, and to toast the launch of their new Kickstarter project.

Patreon Happy Hour

Join past XOXO speaker Jack Conte and the Patreon crew for drinks under the sun with some of our favorite Patreon creators.

Slack’s Slappy Hour

Usually spread around like software butter, the team at Slack converges on Portland to buy you a drink, and listen to you complain about all the things they're doing wrong.

Wieden + Kennedy Open House

Join the W+K team for hors d'oeuvres and drinks on their gorgeous rooftop. Don’t be late for your meeting in The Nest.
