Projects Under Review

  • Project Metrics
    • I am putting together the 2013 project metrics I collected this past year for our Annual Report.
    • It took a bit of time since all of the information was not consolidated in one place.
    • Kate and I had a conversation about the data, and we decided that we needed a bit more information in certain areas.
    • I am working on collecting the extra data for the report, and I am working on writing some copy about our projects in general, as well.
  • Project Tool Summit 2014
    • There is a possibility that we will be able to have 2 summits this year.
    • The OWASP Project Tool summit is an event that we are in the process of planning.
    • We are still not certain if it is something we can move forward with, but we are pursuing the possibility.
    • The aim is to bring OWASP Tool Project Leaders together to work on their projects in an effort to increase quality and usability.
    • More updates to come as I move through the process and learn more.
  • ESAPI Hackathon
    • The ESAPI Hackathon has now come to an end, and the judging is complete.
    • The selection team has now graded the participants, and I have tallied up the results.
    • We plan to announce the winners next week.
    • The selection team was made up of: Kevin Wall, Jim Manico, Chris Schmidt, and Jeff Williams.
    • For more information, visit the Guidelines page or e-mail Chris, Kevin, or me directly.
  • Project Template Migration
    • Kait was very helpful with this project this week.
    • The aim is to migrate all of our OWASP Project to our new OWASP Projects template.
    • Kait kindly sent e-mails to all of our Incubator Project Leaders to ask them to migrate to the new design.
    • We did discover a bug that occurs on a well known browser during the process.
    • I have reached out to Matt for his assistance with this issue, and I hope to have it fixed soon, if possible
  • 2014 Project Summit
    • I am still working on the start of the 2014 Summit Planning Process.
    • I plan on organizing this year's primary summit in Cambridge, UK with AppSec EU.
    • We are currently working out logistics and finances of renting rooms either a few days before or after the conference.
  • Daily Project based queries and requests
    • This has not changed much since I began the post: questions are very similar in nature.
    • Global AppSec questions.
    • Funding queries.
    • Travel availability.
    • Project based administrative help.
    • Project status information.
    • Several project donation questions.
    • Marketing questions.
    • Grant funding questions.

Project Review Assistance Required

Hello Leaders,

We are still in need of more survey results. We would like to ask that you take a bit of time to fill in a short survey that we will use to assess the Usability and Value of each project to its users and the community.

You can find the assessment survey here: Project Usability and Value Assessment

Below are the projects we are currently focusing on assessing:

Please note that this is only one part of the full assessment for each project. The more responses we can get for each project, the better. Please only complete the assessment if you are familiar with the project, or if you have time to familiarize yourself with the project. Thank you to those of you who have submitted your responses. Your assistance is very much appreciated.

Please reach out to me if you have any questions.

Thank you for your assistance, Leaders.

Samantha Groves, OWASP Projects Manager
