Message from Project Leader, Larry Conklin: OWASP Code Review Guide

Eoin and I had the great pleasure to present the Code Review Guide 2.0 project at APPSECUSA2013. I want to thank everyone involved in the project and to give you my personal thank you. It was very much an honor to talk about our success and hard work. We are not done but I feel we surprised a lot of people with how much work a few dedicated volunteers have done.

Please don't loose sight of the end but we are getting closer. Below is our wiki pages loaded into a word doc. Yes, it is rough, but we made sure everyone knew it was an early release document. Also my ppt is included attached.

Larry Conklin, CISSP
