Project Announcements

Project talks at AppSec USA -

The OWASP Project Summit is a smaller version of the much larger
OWASP Summits.  This event activity gives our project leaders the
opportunity to showcase their project progress, and have attendees
sit down and work on project tasks during the event.  It is an
excellent opportunity to engage the event attendees, and it gives
project leaders the chance to move forward on their project
milestones while meeting new potential volunteers that can assist
with future milestones.  The project talks have now been scheduled. 
Visit the AppSec USA website -
