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.
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
