    • We are working hard to prepare for the activities scheduled for the conference.
    • The project leaders are working hard to make sure everything goes according to plan.

  • AppSec EU and 2014 Summit
    • I will no longer be able to attend the AppSec EU conference.
    • This means that I will no longer be involved in the 2014 Project Summit.
