[Owasp-leaders] Virtual Conferences?

This is definitely a great idea, esp. with the budget cuts in companies and the economy. It will help generate some additional revenue for OWASP too. 

For me personally though, I suspect is the same for a lot of people who are on this list, conferences are more about networking with people in the industry than the talks. Most of the talks at some point or the other end up online and I end up watching them that way.

I wonder if polling the intended attendees of the virtual conference through a surveymonkey survey would help. I imagine the intended attendees are the OWASP chapter attendees who don't get to travel.


Experience our unique training style in PCI compliance and Threat Modeling at the RSA conference this April!

After doing the NYC 2008 OWASP event that had over 750 people, I learned
a lot and found new respect about the hard work that it takes to
organize a conference. Kudos to Dave Wichers, Jeff Moss, Bruce Potter
and other conference organizers world wide, its not easy.

I am throwing an idea out there that I would like global feedback of the
OWASP-LEADERS list members of this list.

Would you attend a OWASP event/training was virtual?

I am currently researching http://www.inxpo.com for this purpose.

If you have never seen what they do in 2D no client click:

We simply need some demographic information on this topic so I can
prioritize efforts.


Thanks in advance.
