11. November 2006 | OWASP Switzerland Local Chapter Kickoff Meeting

Switzerland have a Local Chapter for a while now but there were never some meetings or some other activities. Now, a few members of the OWASP Switzerland Local Chapter mailinglist met each other in Zurich to do a real kick-off for this Chapter.

In the Switzerland Local Chapter, we decided that at the moment the most important thing for us would be to build a network of people in Switzerland which are interested in the OWASP too and at the same time to promote it that the folks which didn't know the OWASP yet will get in touch with it. In future meetings we also want to do some presentations and/or workshop for having an active knowledge transfer.
