Reviving OWASP Bangalore Chapter

Update – Jan’ 13th, 2014: I’m excited to let you know that Bangalore OWASP chapter has been up and running, and growing for the last three years now. I no longer live in Bangalore, but the chapter and its people remain a source of knowledge exchange (read, nerd-talk). For more information, check out the OWASP Bangalore homepage.
If need be, you may contact the chapter leads Akash Mahajan (akash [DOT] mahajan {AT} owasp [DOT] org), and KV Prashant (kvprashant {AT} owasp [DOT] org.)

The OWASP Bangalore Chapter met after almost an year today, and I was priviledged to be a part of it. As happens often with technical groups, including LUGs (Linux User Groups), they tend to loose participation and go to indefinite hibernation mode. OWASP-Bangalore’s fate was no different.

Anyhoo! The important point is that we finally met today. There were around 12 peole who turned up, and boy, It’s always an honour to meet enthusiastic people from the Security community. Minutes of the meeting will be posted by Hari, Chapter coordinator, pretty soon on the OWASP-Bangalore mailing list. To cut things short, we discussed and decided on a couple of points to revive the Bangalore Chapter. I’ll personally be looking forward to spreading the information to younger audience. So, just in case you are a part of some College around Bangalore, feel free to drop me a note. We’d love to visit your campus and deliver talks, free of charge. 🙂
As for the regular meetings, we’ve decided to meet every fourth Wednesday of the month. Venues will of course, keep changing.

p.s. I love the song “Jaane Kya Baat Hai” from the movie Sunny. But somehow, I am not able to get the other song,”Aur Kya Ahde Wafaa Hote Hain”, out of my mind since morning. Not that I am complaining 😉

Aur Kya Ahede Wafa…
