April message from OWASP Los Angeles

1. Participate in Projects

OWASP is about projects. Without projects, OWASP wouldn't exist, and projects need new blood. I would like to encourage your participation in the projects. There are many projects to choose from (link below) but testing, development and code review guides are in urgent need of help. You don't need to be a coder to contribute.


Please see what you can contribute and feel free to reach out to the project leaders directly, or send me an email if you want an introduction.

2. Call for Local Speakers

We have a lot of security talent in LA area and we would love to hear from you. Edward Bonver is leading an initiative to have local speakers more involved and present at OWASP meetings. Please reach out to him at edward@owasp.org if you're interested.
