OWASP Learning Gateway Project

The OWASP Learning Gateway Project (OLG) is developing a collaborative learning innovation framework and platform that empower mentoring, and are adaptable to “Learners Led”, collaborative learning needs and user requirements of a global community of technology “Learners at All Levels”. The learning innovation gateway is being designed to offer learning pathways that connect learners with mentors, sponsors, learning opportunities, experiential knowledge, and wisdom. Our goal is to be a successful OWASP Foundation Incubator, and Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI) Incubator, Gateways Project for the benefit of our community of "Learner Innovators" while implementing "Learners Led" and "Learners at All Levels" approaches to mentoring.

OWASP Learning Gateway Project will be a connected, collaborative learning platform to support the OWASP Mentors Committee and WIA (Women in AppSec) Committee. We are currently designing the platform and planning development.

How can I participate in your project?

All you have to do is make the Project Leader's aware of your available time to contribute to the project. It is also important to let the Leader's know how you would like to contribute and pitch in to help the project meet it's goals and milestones. There are many different ways you can contribute to an OWASP Project, but communication with the leads is key.

If I am not a programmer can I participate in your project?

Yes, you can certainly participate in the project if you are not a programmer or technical. The project needs different skills and expertise and different times during its development. Currently, we are looking for researchers, writers, graphic designers, and a project administrator.



The OWASP Learning Gateway project is developed by a worldwide team of volunteers.

Road Map and Getting Involved


As of November, 2016, the highest priorities for the next 6 months are:

  • UX Research Plan
  • Develop a mockup for the look and feel of all pages of the site
  • Setup the Datamodel (80% done)
  • Develop Sitemap
  • Setup a feedback system
  • Design & Setup API
  • Develop API Strategy and Framework
  • Implement Internationalization Support
  • Add Unit Tests for critical procedures:
    • signup
    • integrate courses
    • connect to mentor
  • integrate gotomeeting
  • Transfer project to a Github Organization (done)
  • Develop privacy policy

-- Completed

  • Complete the first draft of the Code Project Template (done)

Getting Involved

Involvement in the development and promotion of Code Project Template is actively encouraged! You do not have to be a security expert or a programmer to contribute. Some of the ways you can help are as follows:


OWASP Learning Gateway Github:


Financials and Resources




Are you fluent in another language? Can you help translate the text strings in the Code Project Template into that language?


Do you have a flair for finding bugs in software? We want to product a high quality product, so any help with Quality Assurance would be greatly appreciated. Let us know if you can offer your help.


Please attend Virtual Mentors Committee meetings ( )for feedback about:

  • What do you like?
  • What don't you like?
  • What features would you like to see prioritized on the roadmap?

Minimum Viable Product

The Code Project Template must specify the minimum set of tabs a project should have, provide some an example layout on each tab, provide instructional text on how a project leader should modify the tab, and give some example text that illustrates how to create an actual project.

It would also be ideal if the sample text was translated into different languages.

Project About

The OWASP Learning Gateway Project is developing a platform that is adaptable to the learning needs and user requirements of a global community of technology learners. The gateway will offer learning pathways that connect learners with mentors and knowledge needed to be successful. Our goal is to be a successful OWASP and Gateways Project.
