Upcoming Events

May 14th, 2013 from 06:30-07:30PM

Where: LVL1 814 E Broadway Louisville, KY 40204

Topic: Blind SQL injection with sqlmap

Presenter: Conrad Reynolds

The next meeting will be held at LVL1. If you are not familiar with it, LVL1 is a "hacker space" (or "maker space" if you prefer) where people get together to work on interesting projects.

Conrad Reynolds is a very talented web application pen tester and excellent presenter which we are excited to have speaking. In addition to learning about blind SQL injection, stick around if you are so inclined to attend the LVL1 weekly meeting to see what they are all about. There are a lot of interesting projects going on at LVL1 to check out.

For the OWASP meeting, please plan on arriving between 06:00 - 06:20PM. Conrad's presentation will be from 06:30 - 07:30. If you want to stay for the LVL1 meeting, it starts at 08:00PM, and runs for 30 minutes or so. They also provide a tour of the facility for anyone interested. Some of the LVL1 members also like to cook, and may have dinner available for donations.

This is our first evening timeframe meeting. We want to accomodate as many as possible, and also wanted to partner up with LVL1 to cross-promote. We hope to see you there!
