> 2017 AppSec Europe Project Summit
> We are excited to announce the OWASP Project Summit EU May 9th & 10th 2017. OWASP is providing a platform for project leaders on the two full days prior to AppSec Eu 2017. Project Summits are a place for project leaders and contributors to collaborate as well as provide feedback to OWASP. The platform provides an open forum setting for ideas, discussing innovations, gaining project contributors and sharing feedback for projects with the goal of helping them advance to the next level. Use this opportunity to demo your project to others at the summit, promote for sponsorship, gain feedback, or simply brainstorm some ideas and add a few features.

> Should Your Chapter Start a Study Group?
> Guest Post by Josh Sokol
> 
> Back in 2010, when I first took over as President of the OWASP Austin Chapter, I noticed that there were a number of chapter members who had an interest in getting their CISSP certification (myself included). We knew that it would be a pretty large undertaking, spanning multiple months of effort, but also knew that we would all be more successful if we could work together and support each other through the process. We found a test date that was far enough in the future to meet our goal of spending a week on each domain, plus a couple of weeks for review, and the first-ever OWASP Austin Study Group was born. Each week, a different study group member was responsible for leading the discussion on a topic. Usually it would be accompanied by a lightweight "review" slide deck and then the group would go over different sets of review questions for that week's domain together. It worked out great with over half of the group taking their test on the goal date and almost everyone receiving a passing grade.
