OWASP Global Projects Report

Currently Working On

  • OWASP Projects at Global AppSec Events
    • I have developed a first draft of the event modules that I plan to coordinate at AppSec EU and USA.
    • AppSec EU: Open Source Showcase & OWASP Projects Track.
    • AppSec USA: Project Leader Workshop, Open Source Showcase (modified: 30 minute, presentation style demos), Project Summit.
    • The proposals have now been sent to the local event planning teams.
    • I am waiting to hear back from them now.
  • OWASP Project Leaders: Brand Usage Guidelines
    • I have begun developing brand usage guidelines for our project leaders with Jim Manico's help.
    • We have decided to use the Apache Software Foundation's documentation on the subject as a guide for our own.
    • We feel they developed excellent material, and we plan to use their guidelines as a starting point.
    • I have spent this week researching their materials, and outlining our usage requirements.
  • OWASP Grants
    • We have decided to take a different approach to our grant research, writing, and management.
    • This is primarily due to the limited number of resources and staff bandwidth.
    • The plan is to source a hand full of grants for the foundation.
    • Then focus on grant writing and management of these proposed grants for the year.
    • Q2 will start the research stage of this plan.
  • Development of Technical Project Advisor Requirements
    • This item involves the new management work flow for project reviews that was proposed for 2013.
    • The volunteer job descriptions are still under development.
    • I hope to have these up by next week on our Initiatives page.
    • Projects Review Process Proposal
    • To read the full descriptions, please visit the advisory role descriptions document.
  • Project Leader Responsibilities & Expectations
    • I am currently working on putting together documentation that outlines a project leader's responsibilities, and our foundation's expectations of them.
    • I am also developing a "How to run a successful OWASP project" document.
    • An OWASP project lifecycle info graphic is being developed as well.
    • I hope that these "How To" documents and graphics will help project leaders understand their responsibilities, and how to leverage the OWASP project infrastructure for success.
    • This is an ongoing operations project.
    • I will have a first draft of these completed by the end of next week.
  • Daily Project based queries and requests
    • This has not changed much since I began the post: questions are very similar in nature.
    • Global AppSec questions.
    • Funding queries.
    • Travel availability.
    • Project based administrative help.
    • Project status information.
    • Several project donations questions.
    • OWASP LinkedIn Updates.
    • What's happening with projects, questions.
