We had a brief meetup at the UNC-Charlotte Cyber Security Symposium on November 2. There we briefly discussed some of the objectives of the local chapter and put together a few action items to help get the chapter off the ground.
Our first official meeting will be sometime in January at UNC-Charlotte.
We have a Twitter Account where we'll be posting news about OWASP Charlotte.
