Polls

From OWASP
Jump to: navigation, search

OWASP Polls are a way of getting the 'pulse' of the OWASP community - they should not be considered 'binding'.

They may be about any subject that people feel may be of interest to the OWASP community.

All polls require an Owasp.org email_address and will publish full details of the responses.

If you ask for the form to be shared with you from a non OWASP address then you will just get a canned response explaining why this will not currently happen.

To add a poll please contact Simon Bennetts

Current Poll(s)

Note that only OWASP members can see the 'live' results and the statement before its release. A summary of the results will be made public when the poll closes, but the full details will stay restricted to OWASP members to prevent email harvesting.
