Austin OWASPers,

Some changes\errata:



The Hackathon training event this month will take place on March 27th,
the same day as the chapter meeting. My first email said the 28th.

Also, we will be moving the April Happy Hour a week ahead to the 19th so
as not to conflict with B-Sides.  Please mark your calendars!


Thanks,


DH
