2012 Kick Off - Call to Action

Calling Chapter Leaders in key markets such as: Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington DC, London, Toronto, and Vancouver. Post your next chapter meeting at Gary's Guide and you might find some new faces that understand software and want to learn about security:

Project/chapter leaders worldwide, perform "outside the echo chamber" outreach to other groups in 2012. Offer up your favorite OWASP Project presentation to help evangelize the OWASP mission, community.

Start here: http://www.meetup.com/find (keyword: mobile, programming, .net, java, internet, computer, developer, find local groups)

Got something new to share?? Be sure to submit the CFP for the OWASP Global AppSec Conferences. 2012 has a lot of exciting things happening that rely on software, let's not forget the core of "fight club" -- have fun sharing technical knowledge, open-source code and the social collaboration with people as together we build a vibrant global professional association that has exploded all over the world:
