The Philly Tech Week 2014 website went public yesterday, January 27, 2014, according to an email announcement, as did a tentative schedule of some of this year's PTW events.

The unveiling of the PTW site kicks off yet another season of some of the best tech companies, coding, contests, and camaraderie that Philadelphia has ever seen.

Kickoff PTW 2014 with Arcade @ The Oval

The Arcade @ The Oval kicks off this year’s PTW. Located at the “Park on the Parkway” at the bottom of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the Arcade @ The Oval is the second edition of the world’s largest arcade game, and is played on the side of the Cira Centre.

Similar to last year’s first and world’s largest game of pong, this year’s arcade game of choice is Tetris. Those who wish to play must RSVP, and you can do so at the Philly website.

Both Philly and Innovations helped to develop the site, which is, according to the email,

“Fully responsive, ready to play with on your mobile and tablet devices.”

Those who wish to attend PTW 2014 can plan for the even using the Featured Events Calendar, and the general Events Calendar in addition to the Track Days page, on which visitors can view an entire day’s schedule including where events are located, and when.
