Boulder Chapter - January Meeting

To kick off 2013 the Boulder Chapter is holding an OWASP Project Roundup. Chapter members will showcase well-known and obscure OWASP projects in a series of lightning talks.

To make this work I need volunteers. Your job is to pick a project, learn a bit about it, then present it to the rest of the group. Informal discussions are good, prepared presentations are better, and live demos are best. The goal is lively, informative, low-stress discussions rather than formal, extensively-research presentations. Spend an hour or two familiarizing yourself with your project (you do not need to be an expert on it), jot your notes into a couple of slides, then share with the group for 5 - 10 minutes.

Need help selecting a project? Take a look at the official project page. Try tools you use already (the OWASP Top 10), tools you've heard of and want to learn more about (WebGoat), or discover something entirely new (ESAPI). All projects are encouraged, from the popular to the esoteric. Still undecided? Send me a note with your interest in presenting and I will happily suggest some projects to choose from.

To avoid duplicates, project topics will be first-come first-served. Email me your topic idea and I will add it to the meeting agenda on the page. To this point, check the site first before picking a project.

Seating is limited and is prioritized for those who RSVP. Parking is available through the Whittier Neighborhood Zone for up to three hours daily. Food and drinks will be provided and there will be a networking session following the meeting. All meetings are free to attend.

Our continued thanks to Aerstone for providing the venue and the refreshments.

    I posted a Boulder OWASP flyer to increase visibility of the chapter. If you didn't have the opportunity to take a few at the this meeting, go to the files area, download and print!!!

    Thanks to everyone who presented, and a special thanks to those who prepared a presentation and we didn't have the time to fit you in (I'm looking forward to those presentations later). Just the fact of running out of time for all of the material demonstrates the value of the material presented as well as the discussion that ensued. Mark, you went out on a limb with the agenda this evening. Look how well it turned out!

    The source of the training virtual machines I mentioned is

    Typically they provide an ISO and a lesson (in .pdf format) to lead you through working on the ISO.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
