Unfortunately visiting Alexandria this Summer is not on my itenerary. Where
are most people here located? I'm living and working in Cairo.

About that project Hamdy, I suggest you start first with the resources that
Mostafa provided, those will give you the bare minimum you should know
before attempting to do anything elaborate. I can't really think of a
project off the top of my head but I've found that trying to replicate the
vulnerabilities indicated by the OWASP top 10 on different
languages/platforms to be a healthy exercise.

Since you develop in python you might for instance create a vulnerable
application that demonstrates the horros of bad security practices in
python, I know of Webgoat for Java developers and DVWA for PHP developers,
I'm not really sure if there is anything for python. Maybe you could be the
one to start that effort off..

I've had a chance to see a demo of the O2 platform and it does look pretty
useful. I especially like the code analysis tools and the penetration
testing scripting capabilities.
