OWASP Dinner (May 21)
At every conference we have an evening social event the first night. They
are always fun and allow participants to have some unstructured time to
mingle with the other attendees. This year's event will be a Flemish buffet
with special Belgian beers at the Monasterium (near the conference
location).

The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a worldwide free and
open community focused on improving the security of application software.
Our mission is to make application security "visible," so that people and
organizations can make informed decisions about application security risks.

Hope to see you all in May!
