About Us

The first BSides Boulder was something that I think we planned for way longer than we should have and in the end it still turned out to not be long enough.

Originally planned for April 15th 2020, there is nothing that we could have seen that would have lead us down any other path. We were going to be doing it in person and the small bug (COVID-19) wasn’t going to stop anything that we had planned. Oh to be young and naive.
