[Owasp-leaders] Developers Vs Security professionals

I think this is very common trend that I see here In Oklahoma US, as a developer 
I am trying to cater more towards developers instead security professionals to 
get them involved. I think the problem here is that most developers are not very 
security conscious people, also many of them is not aware of the fact that there 
are organizations like OWASP that could help them.

Hi folks,

I'll freely admit that I'm relatively new to the world of OWASP, but I
get the distinct impression that theres a significant involvement from
security professions and much less involvement from people from the
software development side.
I gave a talk last night at the OWASP Leeds / Northern UK meeting last
night in Manchester, and to test this theory I asked which of these 2
areas people worked in.
Only one person (out of ~25) worked in software development, and they
were an ex colleague of mine who came to see what I was up to!
Do you think this is common?
And if it is, should we be worried about it?
I'm sure we will all agree that if we cant get developers interested
in security then we'll just be firefighting all of the time.
