Hi everyone.

*How did we hold a conference with 100+ participants with new students
team on Saturday?*
I'm leader of OWASP KNURE student chapter in Ukraine, Kharkiv
[https://goo.gl/7kB3Pw]. At the beginning of the 2016 year I gathered a
team of students that would like to become OWASP activists in our OWASP
KNURE chapter (now they are OWASP KNURE chapter leader board members).
I had a lot of work to do in raising their professional knowledge,
strengthening their leadership skills and becoming a real team. Now I
provide the trainings for them on network/linux/pentest/security basics,
on web-security and of course on OWASP resources (tools, guides, etc...).

And I see that this approach gave its fruits because this Saturday we
held a conference with 100+ participants. And I really didn't do much
work, I just told them what they should do to create an event and the
did everything else by themselves: found the speakers, created an
advertisement campaign, printed OWASP marketing materials, found
sponsors for coffee-brakes, many things more... And I see that the
conference was really successful. It was the second OWASP KNURE
conference for me, but he first one for them, and I'm proud of them.
I've attached some photos to this letter from our conference, hope you
like it.

*After the conference some new points of development has appeared: *
[+] One school teacher told us that he would like to create some kind of
virtual hacking lab and teach pupils web-security basics, he asked our
help in providing some initial trainings, in creating a virtual lab and
course materials.
[+] There was a student from another university that has an interest in
creating an OWASP student chapter at her university. We will help her
with consulting and in other problematic areas if this will become real.
[+] Now we have some new students that would like to be in our team.
 
*Now we're looking forward and already have some new interesting ideas
that we are going to implement in the nearest future:*
[1] We would like to create the constant knowledge sharing meetings.
Everyone who participate in these meetings must provide presentation on
the topic that he/she is interested in at least once in 3 months. In
this case we don't need to search for teachers/trainers/speakers and
also it gives a stimulus to students to learn the things well.
[2] We would like to create an environment where students can create
their own projects, or participate in already existing ones. The
projects should be on web-security topics. OWASP is a great platform for
this, because students can participate in open source projects and also
they can propose their own ones. Of cause many of student would like to
create a startup to gain money :)) but there are also the students that
would like to work for experience. We're constantly seeking for new
possibilities and ways to interest them. If you have some propositions,
then write me please!

*As for me personally:* I would like to create some kind of formal
procedures for governance in our OWASP KNURE chapter and install the
processes for the chapter could work without me. It would take much
efforts, because we need to create: a voting procedure, suffrage, leader
elections procedure, responsibilities and powers of chapter
participants, many more... And also I need to be sure that everything
would work without me.
Then I would like to create a Kharkiv chapter and the first thing I
would like to do is to initiate the creation of student chapters in
other Kharkiv technological universities using the best practices and
experience obtained here at OWASP KNURE. Maybe I would manage to create
a global inter-university students community here, where studs would
share knowledge, provide common events, create projects and startups in
cyber-security and of cause would make our life safer.

Thanks to everyone who had enough patience to read to this line! :)))))

Sincerely yours,
Vadym Chakrian,
Leader of OWASP Student Chapter 
at Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics.
