Hi Eoin & Fabio,


I will of course assist in any way I can! If this could be planned for the
beginning of January it would be fantastic as after that I will be immersed
in the Summit (I am sure you both will too).


I have created a wiki page for the Ireland Training and added an entry on
the Local Chapter page from where it can be accessed - please let me know if
you think this is OK.




I am sending below the information we will need to complete the template -
please let me know if you need my help for any of those points, namely
contacting the Project leaders to check their availability:

-        Date;

-        Venue & Directions;

-        Course Registration URL;

-        Modules, respective trainers, presentation materials and trainer's


I am looking forward to hearing from you!

I'd like to do an OWASP projects ....... expo in Dublin Ireland in January/

I believe the Irish chapter has the funds.


Happy for you to help us out on this.


Fabio (Ireland Chapter lead) was also involved in the london one and shall
support you also.

Dear all,


My name is Sandra Paiva and I have been recently hired by OWASP as a
Training Manager
). If you want to know a bit more about me, feel free to check my wiki page
- http://www.owasp.org/index.php/User:Sandra_Paiva. 


One of my main goals within the OWASP Training, perhaps the most important
one, is to support your training activities in a way that allows us to use a
model that, despite specific and punctual adjustments, can be easily
replicated and become the main frame for all Chapter-led training events.


In this context, I have been asked to start this approach by contacting
Local Chapters who have a positive budget of around $2,000 or, not having
it, have the means and energy to find it.


Furthermore, I have been authorized to propose that we start this effort by
using the concept "OWASP projects and resources you can use TODAY" under
which the London Training has been developed and to use this model as an
example both in terms of concept and methodology. Please see here for all
details -


In a nutshell, we are proposing a Chapter's driven model with Local Chapter
organization in which: 

-        the courses are free for OWASP members  - being that by the time of
the training event anyone may become a member if they desire to do so; 

-        the contents are OWASP projects focused - to promote the awareness
of our Projects and the understanding of how they fit into an Enterprise's
security ecosystem or in its Web Application Development Life-cycle;

-        the costs are supported by a mix of funding - local chapter budget,
external sponsorship, trainers sponsorship (i.e. trip and/or accommodation
paid by themselves) and local chapter members' sponsorship (i.e. taking
trainers in as guests).


If you would like to organize a training event of this sort, I would suggest
that you contact me after gathering the following information which will be
our starting point:

1.      Date of the event

2.      Venue and directions

3.      Course's details - with regard to the contents, we would suggest
that the focus falls into the OWASP Projects with the most quality and
Projects being developed by members of your local Chapter.  


The role of the Local Chapters in reinforcing visibility of OWASP Projects
within the local corporate communities and, by that, in encouraging the use
and understanding of our tools and documentation is absolutely invaluable -
I hope you can find this opportunity to build a solid and strong training
model as exciting as I do and am looking forward to having your thoughts! 


Many thanks,




Sandra Paiva
