The OWASP Foundation has selected the technical writer for Google Season of Docs

The OWASP Foundation has selected the technical writer for Google Season of Docs by Fabio Cerullo

The OWASP Foundation has been accepted as the organization for the Google Seasons of Docs, a project whose goals are to give technical writers an opportunity to gain experience in contributing to open source projects and to give open-source projects an opportunity to engage the technical writing community.

During the program, technical writers spend a few months working closely with an open-source community. They bring their technical writing expertise to the project's documentation, and at the same time learn about open source and new technologies.

The open-source projects work with the technical writers to improve the project's documentation and processes. Together they may choose to build a new documentation set, or redesign the existing docs, or improve and document the open-source community's contribution procedures and onboarding experience. Together, we raise public awareness of open source docs, of technical writing, and of how we can work together to the benefit of the global open source community.

After a careful review and selection process, the OWASP Foundation has picked the primary technical writer who will work along the OWASP ZAP Team for the next 3 months to create the API documentation of this flagship project.

Congratulations to Nirojan Selvanathan!

Thank You to Volunteers and Board Members that worked BlackHat Booth 2019

The OWASP Foundation would like to thank the OWASP Las Vegas Chapter Volunteers for taking the time out of their busy schedule to give back and volunteer to work the booth at BlackHat 2019.  It was great meeting our Las Vegas OWASP members and working with Jorge, Carmi, Dave, and Nancy.  
Also, take a moment to thank Global Board Members Martin Knobloch, Owen Pendlebury, and Gary Robinson for also working the booth and speaking with individuals and groups to answer questions on projects and suggestions on the use of our tools to address their work problems.
OWASP can not exist without support from our members.
