Open Source Showcase

The Open Source Showcase (OSS) is an event module that takes open source projects, and gives project leaders or contributors an opportunity to showcase their work in a demo type of environment. It is an event module where open source project leaders have an opportunity to demo their projects, and speak to attendees about what their project is about. There are usually 4 time slots available, and several projects can demo during one time slot depending on the space available. The local event organisers must provide tables, monitors, cables, etc.

The Open Source Showcase is open to any project - not just OWASP projects. The only requirement is that the project must be licensed under an approved Open Source License. The local event organisers must provide all OSS participants with a free full conference ticket as all showcase participants are expected to be ticketed conference attendees.

OWASP Projects Track

The OWASP Projects Track (OPT) gives OWASP project leaders the opportunity to speak about their project in a speaker type of format. Selected project leaders are expected to prepare their slide decks and present their project for 30-50 minutes during their designated time slot at the conference. The OPT event module is open to OWASP Projects only. The only two requirement are that the project must be licensed under an approved Open Source License, and the project must be a part of the OWASP Projects Infrastructure. The local event organisers must provide all OPT participants with a free full conference ticket as all OPT participants are expected to be ticketed conference attendees.

OWASP Project Leader Workshop

The Project Leader Workshop is a three hour event module that brings together current and potential OWASP project leaders to discuss project related issues and topics. The Project Leader Workshop is an optional event module for our leaders that takes on a presentation, discussion, and workshop format. It is an interactive tool used to bring together project leaders from across the globe to share valuable insights and recommendations to their fellow members.

OWASP Project Summit

The OWASP Project Summit is a smaller version of the much larger OWASP Summits. This event module gives our project leaders the opportunity to showcase their project progress, and have attendees sit down and work on project tasks during the event. It is an excellent opportunity to engage the event attendees, and it gives project leaders the chance to move forward on their project milestones while meeting new potential volunteers that can assist with future milestones. This is an optional event module, and all OWASP Project Summit participating projects must be invited to attend the event under this module. The local event organisers must provide all Project Summit participants with a free full conference ticket as all participants are expected to be ticketed conference attendees.
