I am encouraged by your initiative to restart the chapter.  Please let me
know if I can help support this in any way.

Will any of you be attending the AppSec EU conference in Sweden in June?

Dear All,

In response to the list thread that Stephan initiated and after a few
off-list emails with Stephan and Charl (SensePost), I would like to call a
meeting to attempt to restart the OWASP South Africa chapter as per:
http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Chapter_Handbook:_Chapter%27s_life_cycle

Please join us on 11 May 2010 at 7pm at the Sandton Convention Centre. Let's
explore the possibility of having a single South African chapter with
alternate meetings in Jo'burg and Cape Town. This may be better suited to
our geography and small App Sec community. At the meeting we'll elect some
leaders, hopefully at least one in each location, and discuss potential
chapter activities. We'll also need to draft a letter to OWASP describing
our intentions and asking their permission to restart the chapter.

IT Web have been kind enough to allow us to use one of the conference rooms
that are reserved for the IT Web Security Summit that will be held at this
venue from 11 to 13 May. 

See:
http://www.itweb.co.za/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=30297&ca
tid=236&Itemid=178

Let's meet at the Security Summit registration area from 6:45 onwards. I'll
try and arrange with the IT Web staff that we put up signs to the room (not
sure of the room number yet).

See you there!

Regards
Paul

centre its probably safe to say that we would need to organise separate
events for these major centres.

people dont always like to travel between the 2 major cities. Would it be
possibly to arrange an inaugural/"i want to help" meetup in the middle
somewhere? Midrand/Centurion? Lots of InfoSec people based in Centurion. I
live in JHB, work in PTA and am willing to travel.
