Probably by now most of think that I'm a grumpy old git that only
criticises what is going on at OWASP, so to start moving back the dial into
positive energy (Martin thx for the nudge), here is my tribute and respect
to the great OWASP Leader that is John Willander.
On the 13th of May 2013, I wrote the On John Wilander....
post which said:
John asked me this today via linkedIn to write a recommendation for him:
*Dear Dinis, *
*As I wrote on the leaders list I'm no longer co-leader of OWASP Sweden
as of this week's chapter meeting in Stockholm. Hopefully you can help to
briefly summarize/recommend my OWASP work 2007 till now.
Thanks in advance! *
Which of course I was happy to do.
Here is what I wrote:
*John is one of the few guys in the world that I would hire on the spot
(if I could). Not only he is an expert in his field (checkout his PHD on
'using static analysis for security') he is a great Person (with capital P)
His contributions at OWASP rank above the highest ever, specially the
way he organised the OWASP AppSec EU conference in Stockholm, and how we
was able to assembly an amazing set of participants for his 'Browser track'
at the the OWASP Summit in Lisbon.
John also is a great singer and I have really amazing memories of us
playing together in multiple OWASP conferences and summit.
Finally, but as important, John is a team player, has a great soul and
is somebody I would trust implicitly. This means that he is an amazing
asset for any team.
As you can see by this review, I have John in very high regard, and hope
that one day I will be privileged to work with him on another
Thanks John for all your great work and contributions (so far) to OWASP and
the WebAppSec community :)
