SHELL ON THE BORDER

MAY31 – JUNE01

About

Shell on the Border (SOTB) is a hacker’s conference during a two-day period featuring technical talks, a CTF competition, and an epic after party.

During the 1800's in the American Wild West, outlaws, bandits, and fugitives flocked to a border town at the edge of the frontier—a town nicknamed “Hell on the Border.” Outlaws such as Billy the Kid and Whiskey Bill ran rampant making hideous crimes commonplace. Deputy U.S. Marshals from Fort Smith were sent across the border into Indian Territory to find and arrest those individuals who fled justice from the federal courts.

Today, Fort Smith, Arkansas is on the border of another frontier—the digital landscape. As hackers, we have the potential to be both the lawmen and the lawless in this new landscape. We are the digital gunslingers of this old fort town. We are the grey, black, and white hats of this new frontier and Shell on the Border is our proving ground.

Shell on the Border is the brain child of the Fort Smith 2600 Hacker Community. It is our vision to build a culture of hackers, makers, and creators in the River Valley Community.
