About the chapter
The Denver OWASP chapter is comprised of Denver metro area (and beyond) professionals and is constantly evolving. In the early years, our chapter meetups consisted of 3-5 people talking about appsec in a donated meeting space. From there we have migrated to holding meetings of 15-25 people at the Hosting.com building in Denver, to 30-40 people on the Community College of Aurora campus, to maxing out capacity at the Chinook Tavern as well as Dave & Busters (on many nights). The Denver OWASP chapter is focused on our security community, and discussing advances in technology that impact us all.
Chapter Meetings are held the 3rd Wednesday of designated months, see the MeetUp.com site for regular updates and meeting information.
A large part of why 100+ people regularly attend our meetings is due to our presenters (spectacular networking with intelligent individuals coupled with great food and drinks certainly helps). As such, we are always looking for talented speakers ready to share interesting information on a wide variety of topics: Please reach out to Denver OWASP President Serge Borso: serge 'dot' borso 'at' owasp.org if you are interested in presenting at one of our regular meetups.
