Geographic Area of Bay Area Chapter

The 'Bay Area' is actually the San Francisco Bay Area in California, which is near other large towns that are across the bay from San Francisco such as Berkeley and Oakland, and south of San Francisco are San Mateo, Palo Alto, and the whole San Jose area. Currently, the Bay Area OWASP Chapter covers this whole geographic region.

Social Hour(s)

About OWASP Social Hours

The purpose of the OWASP social gathering is:

  • Informal security chat - the benefits of "hallway con" and security talk with others in the industry
  • Networking - meet other people in the field and industry
  • After work drinks - a nice break after a long work day

Note: These events won't have any formal presentations. They're meant to be social gatherings to meet others in the industry and chat about security. Check our quarterly OWASP Bay Area schedule for the security presentation events. https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Bay_Area

Is your organization interested in hosting an OWASP social hour in the bay area (San Francisco, South Bay, East Bay)? Contact michael.coates@owasp.org
