next level? Learn from its maintainer! Hardening your Web 2.0, .NET,
and PHP code? Be instructed by masters of the craft Dave Wichers and
Robert H'obbes' Zakon, and respected infosec authors Shreeraj Shah
(author of "Hacking Web Services") and Erez Metula (author of "Managed
Code Rootkits"). And if you want to set up the next generation of
application layer defenses, build your intrusion detection and
protection platform with Colin Watson.

our health. Place your donations and get signed up to race in the late

WOMEN IN APPSEC
Enable more women to enter the application security field. We're off
to a great start with the Wells Fargo Foundation's generous seed
funding of $5,000 for grants to women interested in attending OWASP
AppSec USA 2011 to launch their career in this growing field. OWASP
transformed the way information security works once already, and it's
time again to propel positive progress.
