Welcome to SnowFROC 2013 - the 5th Annual Front Range OWASP Security Conference

The Colorado OWASP chapters are proud to present the 5th annual SnowFROC. This event will consist of one day of formal presentations and a half-day of training and informal Birds-of-a-Feather (BoaF) sessions. We anticipate approximately 300 attendees.

The conference will occur on Thursday, March 28th and will feature four primary tracks:

  • High-Level Technical
  • Deep-Dive / Hands-on Technical
  • Management
  • Legal

Running in parallel to the conference proceedings will be a capture the flag (CTF) hacking competition developed exclusively for SnowFROC by Boulder OWASP chapter members. The day will conclude with a moderated panel discussion featuring top industry leaders.

The training and BoaF sessions will take place Friday, March 28. Free training will be offered to all conference delegates in the area of secure coding. In addition, Friday will feature a CTF post-mortem in which participants will be encouraged to attack previously out-of-bounds CTF framework (the scoreboard, the VM, etc.).
