Next Chapter Meeting
Our next Chapter meeting will be October 11, 2011 at the University of North Carolina Charlotte campus. It will be somewhere in the building where the Cyber Security Symposium (which you should also attend) is to be held. We're working on a speaker right now, but guarantee it should be a really good one considering the line-up coming to speak at the Symposium. The meeting will begin at 6:30pm.
- We now have a Power Point Presentation for pitching the chapter to other local professional organizations.
- Many thanks to Brent for designing a logo, color scheme, and Power Point template for us. You can see a taste of it on Twitter page. The Power Point template we'll use for local presentations (such as Infragard, PHP Users group, etc.)
We'll try to keep a record of our chapter meetings online as we go. The most recent ones are:
We have a Twitter Account where we'll be posting news about OWASP Charlotte.
