Venue/Date&Time/Model Venue

November 5, 2008
Time TBD
Discussion Model
"Everybody is a Participant"
Please add here, ASAP, any needed relevant resources, e.g. data-show, boards, laptops, etc.
There is plenty of knowledge available inside the OWASP community. This is spread via the OWASP AppSec Conferences and the local chapter meetings, not to forget the books available now. Another, very important way to distribute the available knowledge is to teach! In plenty presentations knowledge is put into slides to share it. The next step is to reuse the information of those presentations and create training material. In a Boot Camp for example, it's not only about telling how to break stuff, but let the attendees break it themselves. Also let them fix the problems, with guidance of the experienced!
