OWASP – 2nd December 2011, Luxembourg

The BeNeLux chanpter of the Open Web Application Security project is meeting in December and we will be there, at the forefront of the latest security issues facing application (and OS!) developers. Both Brad, Sanne and Ton will be representing SecurityBrad / PrentOS so the shop is closed on the 2nd December.

StreetView?

We do get asked where the shop is on StreetView. It is possible for you to see the shop on StreetView but not from directly outside as the picture has not been updated from the days the shop was a fietsmaken!

The shop used to look like this! The shop has always been known as the Service Station – we just kept the name.
