Perfect and YES for me.

Can we try to get this done for Irvine?

Looking at the list of Trainers I don't expect a prob with Dan, Dave, Jeff
or Matt's class.
So when there are enough votes can someone pin asap Jason and Joe?

At the moment, we already have 1 participant (Tony from Atlanta) so once we
have this approved we should contact the leaders ASAP.

I would recommend that the OCC (Connections) take the lead on this (for
Irvine) and that the GCC (Conferences) brings it on board as something that
is negotiated/arranged for all conferences.

Dave, the original idea was from Tony, who contacted me (which I fully
supported at the time as one of my 'crazy ideas' (cant remember what Jeff
called them) which Kate was not aware of and you guys reacted badly (which
was part of the reason for my tantrum a couple days ago))

Great stuff,

Let's get this approved asap so that we can get some extra leaders to Irvine

compromise between giving things away for free, and losing funding for

We won’t be giving away a flood of free classes, but those we do give away
aren’t likely to cost OWASP much if any money. There may be times where some
leader might have paid to attend anyway, but overall I think this is a good

I’d like your vote on this compromise, and I, of course vote Yes.

If we agree, we should propose it to the conferences committee to get their
buy in.


p.s. if we agree to do this, I think we should ‘ask’ all training providers
for the OWASP Irvine, Ireland, and DC events if they will agree to this
modification. They don’t have to, but we will also indicate that this will
be ‘required’ for future events.  And for those that agree, we should figure
out a system for offering these free slots to OWASP leaders (however we
define those J ).
