So we have hit a bit of a lull over the past two months as you can probably tell. August meeting was really low attendance and September was a non-event since I largely have been out of town and so have a lot of the other co-leads. Nonetheless, get ready to resume meetings. Next one is Oct 27th at the Tilted Kilt @ Cumberland. Make a note and check out details in the Chapter Meetings page below.
FYI - We are trying to reach out to more developers, quality assurance engineers, and software architects so if you have colleagues in those areas, please invite them to come. For next meeting information, please visit the Chapter Meetings tab and RSVP in the link provided.

There is an OWASP Atlanta Linkedin Group. For those addicted to LinkedIn, we have a group you can further feed your addiction. The OWASP Atlanta Chapter. http://www.linkedin.com/groups?home=&gid=1811960&trk=anet_ug_hm
