OWASP Project of the Month


AppSecEU 2014.jpg

  • Project Activity Modules in Cambridge UK
    • The AppSec EU event is coming up fast.
    • 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.
    • I will no longer be able to attend the event so they will need to pick up the on-site management during the conference.
  • 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.
    • I will be having 2 hand-off meetings today to guide volunteers on what is left to be done for the Summit, and what to expect during the event.
    • Dinis Cruz and Matt Tesauro have kindly agreed to do the planning and on-site management after next Tuesday.
    • I wish the team the best of luck at the event! Rock it, Summit team! :-)
  • Staff Hand-off
    • Hugo, Kait, Sarah and I had a hand-off call this week to discuss how the team will be moving forward after my departure.
    • There will be many challenges ahead, but I am confident that the team will thrive despite my absence.
    • We successfully developed a plan and reporting structure for all future project administration and design/marketing work.
    • After Tuesday, June 10th, Sarah will be taking on this extra responsibility.
  • Off-boarding
    • I have been working all week to try and consolidate everything I do for the staff and community.
    • I have resigned my post, and my last day on the job is Tuesday, June 10th 2014.
    • I have made a list of daily/weekly tasks I work on, and current projects I am managing.
    • Additionally, I have made a list of Summit needs that will need to be taken on before the June 23/24 event.

OWASP Program Manager leaving OWASP

Dear OWASP Leaders,

I am writing to inform you that I have resigned my post, and I will be concluding my staff work with OWASP on Tuesday, June 10th, 2014. My original last day was meant to be August 8th, 2014, but circumstances have changed and I have had to depart sooner.

I feel sad to leave OWASP as this is one of the best communities I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I consider many of you, family, and I am truly sad to be leaving.

I am confident that this is the best decision for me, and I wish you all the best of luck. If you need me, you know where to find me. :-)

Thank you for the opportunity to get to know you. Keep being amazing! :-)

Best Regards,

Samantha Groves
