OWASP-Sweden in Computer Sweden - 08:44, 19 Dec 2007 (EDT)
Today the Swedish national IT newspaper 'Computer Sweden' published an article on the new OWASP-Sweden chapter - Mecka för säker programmering till Sverige, or A Mecka for Secure Programming Reaches Sweden in English. While OWASP is more than a programmer's guide, Mattias Bergling and I are very happy to get the news out to a large part of Sweden's IT industry.
