My name is Jim Manico and I've been an active member of OWASP since 2008.
- I am the founder, producer and host of the OWASP Podcast Series. As of May 2011 I have published 84 shows and have spent over 500 hours making the OWASP Podcast a reality. I am grateful to my many guests who have made the show a success.
- I am also a contributor and project manager of the ESAPI project. I have the largest number of individual check-in's for the ESAPI-Java project and work to easy communication between the many volunteers of this project.
- I am also the chair of the OWASP Connections committee where I manage the http://owasp.blogspot.com, http://twitter.com/owasp and https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Press. I feel that these activities are directly inline with the OWASP core mission of spreading awareness.
- I am also spearheading several ESAPI-like projects that provide modular single-use controls for ease of use. I have only begun these efforts, but have started the OWASP Encoder, the OWASP validator and the OWASP HTML Sanitizer project with a variety of very talented developers.
I feel very hesitant to list what I have given to OWASP, because OWASP has given so much more to me. I am a teacher/student of secure coding practices and have found OWASP materials to be the best in industry.
