Inaugural Meeting October 19, 2011 6:30 PM at Seasons 52
We will be holding our first meeting on October 19 for an informal gathering of those interested in the OWASP mission. This is a chance to get to know the other members of the chapter and engage in the initial dialogue that will drive the direction of the group. We want to know what kinds of technologies you use or are interested in learning about, the challenges you are facing in your daily work and get a sense for the types of content you want to see at future meetings. I will bring some copies of various OWASP guides and possibly some other OWASP shwag to this initial meeting. We will be covering the OWASP mission, culture, and a high level view of OWASP projects. The format for this meeting will largely be discussion oriented. This is not currently a sponsored event, but we do have interested parties asking about sponsorship opportunities so this may change.
