OWASP PROJECTS

Primary Goal: Continue to evolve the OWASP Projects Infrastructure by developing operational systems that facilitate Leader participation and innovation.

Subgoal 1: Continue to work on the operational projects platform with the aim of developing it to be more self sufficient for Leaders.

  • Recruit a Projects Support Intern.
  • Bring all of the project repositories into Ohloh.
  • Continue to develop the Project Portal for Leaders.
  • Monitor and update the Project Page with relevant information on a weekly basis.
  • Continue to produce weekly and quarterly information reports.
  • Organize a monthly webinar about an OWASP Project.
  • Produce more substantial software security/projects articles for our quarterly Connector.
  • Migrate all of the Project wiki pages to the new template
  • Facilitate project page compliance with new Sponsorship Guidelines.
  • Facilitate project product compliance with new Sponsorship Guidelines
  • Develop marketing and communications pieces that promote: Benefits of Having an OWASP Project; How to start a project; Project Lifecycle; and Review Process.
  • Have one Project Leader meeting a month.
  • Facilitate OWASP contributions to the Apple Developer Program.
  • Identify & promote cross-project collaboration to move clusters of projects forward, with e.g. work groups that work on a certain domain.
  • Start a task force of people with spare cycles that can help projects that need extra man-power of are falling behind in delivery of new releases (especially the flag ship projects)
  • Ask project leaders to create & give project related training or contribute to the OWASP trainings.
  • Push for establishment of completion dates for key tasks for select projects.

Subgoal 2: Bring more Project Leaders together in 2014.

  • Work towards getting at least 2 projects represented at every Global AppSec Conference in 2014.
  • Plan a Project Summit Event in 2014
  • Work on developing Project Leader Workshop module that can be given when I am not present.

Subgoal 3: Solidify the Projects Review Process.

  • Develop a pragmatic method of doing project reviews.
  • Test the review process developed at the 2013 Summit
  • Finish reviewing the projects that have specifically asked for review.
  • Review the Flagship Projects.
  • Review the Lab Projects.
  • Review the Incubator Projects.
  • Report on the findings and outcomes.
  • Document the system so it can be reproduced. (This will probably be a long document/set of instructions and lessons learned).

Subgoal 4: Design a more sustainable revenue stream using the Project’s IP. (We will probably have to drop this subgoal due to the potential change in our project model this year.)

  • In depth market research to determine niche opportunities.
  • Come up with at least 4 different potential opportunities based on research.
  • Develop an implementation plan.
