OWASP is now launching the Summer of Code 2008 (SoC 2008)
- The SoC 2008 is an open sponsorship program were participants/developers are paid to work on OWASP (and web security) related projects.
- The SoC 2008 is also an opportunity for external individual or company sponsors to challenge the participants/developers to work in areas in which they are willing to invest additional funding.
- The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a worldwide free and open community focused on improving the security of application software. The mission is to make application security "visible," so that people and organizations can make informed decisions about application security risks.
- The only requirement is that the candidate shows the potential to accomplish the project's objectives/deliveries and the commitment to dedicate the time required to complete it in the appropriate period.
