INTRODUCTION

Application Security leaders, software engineers, and researchers from all over the world gather at Global AppSec conferences to drive visibility and evolution in the safety and security of the world’s software, as well as to network, collaborate, and share the newest innovations in the field.

CALL FOR TRAINERS (CfT) & SUBMISSION  

The Program Team is formally issuing a call for Trainers, opening on January 10, 2022.

As with previous Global AppSec events, we would like to run a number of different training courses of varying lengths over several days surrounding the conference. Trainings will take place from June 6, 2022, through June 8, 2022. Due to the ongoing status of COVID19, we will be hosting the training courses virtually. More information is referenced below and in the submission process for this CfT.

Trainers can apply to give 1, 2, or 3-day classes. The training audience will include developers interested in security as well as security professionals.

We are looking for training courses at all levels from someone new to the application security field to advanced topics for experienced professionals. However, all training submissions should have a focus on practical skills which are immediately applicable to an attendee’s job and have a significant hands-on element with tasks and exercises for attendees to attempt during the training. Our main priority for selecting trainings for this event is new content that has not been offered before at an OWASP training event.

Not be a Marketing Pitch - Submissions that double as marketing or include sales pitches within the training will not be accepted.

Have a Detailed Outline - Detailed description of how you are structuring the course. Walk the reviewer through the training.

Be Clearly Applicable - Classes that prioritize content that attendees will be able to immediately implement preferred.
