Welcome to SnowFROC, the Winter 2009 Front Range OWASP Application Security Conference!

After a successful FROC in June of 2008, we are back in Denver, Colorado USA on 5 March 2009!

This year we again present a full day, multi-track conference.

In 2008, we attracted a packed venue with our great AppSec speakers, and we hope to achieve the same again in 2009. This year we organized the conference to occur during the peak of the Colorado ski season, so that speakers can head up to the nearby mountains before and/or after the conference to enjoy some of the legendary snow.
