One of the biggest highlights of the year for X-Team was the unveiling of the X-Outpost, our roaming hacker house.
Looking back now, what an epic adventure it has been joining the co-living movement.
In 2016, the X-Outpost was hosted in 4 countries and 5 cities, including:
- Gran Canaria (Canary Islands)
- Naples, Italy
- Boston, MA
- Chicago, IL
- Koh Phangan, Thailand
To learn more about how we created this co-living experience for our community of developers, check out our first post about it here.
Off the coast of Spain, Gran Canaria is a beautiful island (part of the Canary Islands) and great place for hiking, surfing, and epic Spanish food.
X-Teamers explored the island on motorbike, while also taking our drone (the x-sparrow-1) out for a ride often.
Boston & Chicago
A group of X-Teamers took the X-Outpost through the USA's East Coast, hitting Boston and Chicago for some epic coworking spots, including the Boston Public Library.
Castles, epic views, real pizza, and of course, limoncello -- what more do you need at an Italian X-Outpost?
An awesome host, of course, and X-Teamer Gianluca Esposito was just that, helping to create our first-ever X-Outpost Guardian (a host to show other X-Teamers around his city).
Plus, you can't beat coworking together next to a castle.
Koh Phangan, Thailand
To top off the year, the X-Outpost landed in Thailand for more than a month. And in an epic spot right on the beach of this super private island.
X-Teamers made the most of their time as well, fitting in Muay Thai training, the world-famous Full Moon Party, hiking in the jungle, hosted a salsa course, snorkeling, LAN game nights, and more.
