The wait is over! OWASP Houston is here!  We will have an informal kick-off

private meeting room. This is just two weeks away. Please join us to help
shape OWASP Houston before you leave for the holidays.

The goal of this kick-off is to meet local security professionals and make
decisions regarding the OWASP Houston 2013 series of meetings. Please take
a moment to complete this five question survey. We will be announcing
aggregate results at the meeting and try to make a decision for a quarterly
meeting space.

If you can make it to the meeting, great. Please RSVP on our meetup page so
we can have some expectation of attendance. Food and drinks are courtesy of
our sponsors for the evening, Imperva and Alert Logic. Many thanks to both
organizations for taking a chance sponsoring a new chapter.

RSVP at meetup.com <http://meetup.com/owasp-houston> If you don't want to
give your real name that's fine.. But, RSVP anyway.

It is our goal to provide you with excellent presentations on application
security topics that interest you. At this time we feel that quarterly
formal meetings with at least two presenters is an attainable goal. We are
working to secure some top notch speakers. For instance, one of our early
confirmed speakers for February is Jason Chan from Netflix. Jason will
speak about Netflix's approach to application security with tools like
Simian Army, Security Monkey and Gauntlt which are all designed to wreak
havoc on your applications and infrastructure.

For our monthly meetings you should expect an informal hands-on
environment. We may be having crowd-sourced lightning talks, bug hunting,
workshops, training, CTF, lock picking contests, etc. Whatever it is it'll
be fun and you should learn something.

You can read more on the chapter page.

meeting space. If you have a suggestion please reply to me directly.
