Currently Working On

  • Projects at AppSec APAC 2013: Jeju, South Korea
    • Sarah and I have been working together to develop the Projects Module for our Global AppSec Conferences.
    • We decided that we should try to bring the Open Source Showcase and the OWASP Project Track initiatives to all four Global AppSec Conferences.
    • The Call for Entries forms have been developed and launched this week.
    • Blog Announcement
    • Open Source Showcase Announcement
    • OWASP Project Track Announcement
    • We are in the process of getting the forms translated into Korean.
  • Project Support Volunteer Role Development
    • Samantha put together a role description for a part-time project support volunteer.
    • This role was developed to help the 3 Guidebook projects with project support duties.
    • Please see the Volunteer Job Description Document for more details.
    • We are looking for 3 separate volunteers that will be responsible for the same role.
    • Each volunteer will be responsible for project support duties for one project.
  • SourceForge Update
    • Jason, Kate and Samantha attended a meeting with the Geeknet team.
    • We let them know that we will be ending our contract.
    • We discussed the possibility of proposing alternative payment options with them.
    • They agreed to review our proposal.
    • Jason, Kate, and Samantha agreed on two alternative payment options.
    • Samantha drafted a response to the Geeknet Team, outlining our options.
    • Option 1: OWASP would like to propose that Geeknet waive either all or a percentage of the invoice fee, and redistribute the funds as a donation to the OWASP Foundation.
    • Option 2: OWASP would like to propose a 1 year corporate membership, and a 6 month online rotating banner advertisement in exchange for $10,000 being deduction from the Invoice in question. Total value: $17,500 in OWASP Services.
  • Project Processes Development
    • Putting the handbook aside until these are fleshed out and agreed to.
    • I feel it is a much better idea to tackle individually, and them add them to the handbook.
    • Process form development: 1st Draft Complete, Please Review.
    • Project Stage Benefits: 1st Draft Complete, Please Review.
    • Project Graduation Process: Proposal Still Under Development.

    • Funding queries.
    • Travel availability.

    • Project status information.
