OWASP New Zealand Day 2010

Hi everyone,

The OWASP New Zealand Day 2010 conference was great and it was cool to see 160 delegates gathering for the event! At the end, we had 7 presentations including an impromptu one ;-).

Feedback forms returned indicate audience was satisfied with the overall quality of the event and I believe this feedback recognized all the efforts to make this conference happen. In fact, I must thank again all the speakers for the time spent and their contribution to the OWASP community. Without them, there won't be a conference.

I would also like to remember that entry to the conference was free and sponsors Security-Assessment.com and Lateral Security offered coffee, lunch and snack breaks to all the attendees.

Some of the presentations have been published and can be downloaded from:

Remaining presentations will be probably published later next month.

OWASP NZ Day 2010 had also some blog coverage:

- Kirk Jackson wrote an excellent article covering all the key points raised during the conference:

If anyone is planning to write or wrote articles/stories on the conference/talks, please let me know.
