I want to encourage people to do ZAP presentations and training, and one of the things I was considering was a "ZAP Evangelists" page on the wiki, detailing people who are happy to do ZAP talks and/or training.
It would probably just be a simple table with things like:
  • The persons name
  • An optional link to a profile, eg on the OWASP wiki, LinkedIn etc
  • Contact details, email, twitter, whatever
  • The region they are happy to talk in (eg US West coast, or wherever)
  • Any specific aspects of ZAP they focus on, eg automated regression tests
  • Links to previous talks - videos, slides etc

Anyone here like to be on such a list?

Cheers,

Simon

Hi, Simon.

You can count on me! It will be an honor to be evangelist ZAProxy!

In security events in my region, already speak some tools and also be able to talk about the ZAProxy.

When the wiki link is available, send us to add.

Cheers,

I've created a page on the wiki: http://code.google.com/p/zaproxy/wiki/ZapEvangelists

Please update it with your details, or post them to this thread.

I havnt linked to it from anywhere else yet, I'd like to build up a few more names before doing that ;)

Many thanks!

I'm a ZAP-vangelist! (can we have t-shirts?)

I'm happy to talk to give talks anywhere I happen to be, which is usually roaming around the US. Also happy to give demos via Skype or WebEx for remote people. We've switched to ZAP (from WebScarab) for all our training classes and use it as our primary dynamic scanner example technology when we do fun R&D stuff.

Thanks,

Dan

Good point about the t-shirts - I'll start a separate thread about that, as that applies to ZAP developers, testers, translators etc as well!

Many thanks!

I've just updated http://code.google.com/p/zaproxy/wiki/ZapEvangelists to include a 'languages' column and a general note that most evangelists are happy to travel to give talks/training as long as expenses are covered.
I've assumed 'English only' for people on the list unless you've said otherwise ;)
Please let me know if I've got anything wrong.

Simon,

 

I would like to give talks or/and training in Spain, in English or Spanish.

 

My email is fc...@seinhe.com, my twitter account is @florenciocano and my LinkedIn account is http://www.linkedin.com/in/florenciocano

 

I have done a talk in 44CON (in English) about risk assessment of web applications and Navaja Negra, a Spanish security conference, about fuzzing browsers with Peach Fuzzer. The video of this last talk is here http://youtu.be/nznEmm3Uud8 (in spanish).

 

Hope to be able to help the ZAP project!

Simon,

 

Have ZAP project already developed presentations for ZAP talks and/or scripts/documentation for the training?

 

If not, I can develop something and share with the list in order to tune it before using it.

All of the ZAP talks I've given are linked off my OWASP page - feel free to rip any of them off ;)
And I'd be very happy to publicise anyone elses presentations - mine work for me, but I know everyone gives talks in their own ways, so mine might not work well for everyone else.

I've talked about ZAP training scripts with a few people, and I really like the idea.
We dont really have anything like that at the moment, but would love to create some.
My rough plan was to try and develop them as required - so if you're planning a ZAP course then let me know and I'll give whatever assistance I can.
It would be really great if we could have a set of ZAP course notes that anyone could download and then deliver.

Cheers,

Simon

I've set up a Google Group just for ZAP Evangelists: http://groups.google.com/group/zaproxy-evangelists

The intention is that this will be the way for people to contact all evangelists and should make it easier for evangelists to control how they get such messages.
It can also be used for other related topics, such as ZAP training courses :)

I _think_ I've invited all of the current evangelists, but the group is open to anyone to join.


Cheers,

Simon

Hi Simon,

I just did a quick search for India in the ZAP evangelists page, and the results came out none. I do use ZAP couple of times a week, and I would be working on integrating it with the build. I have been teaching ZAP to all the QA folks at my organization, and I would wish to take it outside my organization as well. Could I send my details to you to add myself to the evangelists page?

Thank you for coordinating and maintaining such an active community.

Please add yourself to the Evangelists page, and join the ZAP Evangelist group (if you havnt already) :)
Many thanks for including ZAP in your talks - I'll email you directly about how to get a complementory ZAP t-shirt with our thanks!

Note to anyone who gives a ZAP talk (or one which heavily features ZAP) at a conference - just send me a link to your planned talk and it will hopefully qualify for a free ZAP t-shirt.

Hi, Simon!

Thank you for your ZAP in 10. The skills gained through that set of videos are good enough to fulfill security testing requirements of web apps for regulators auditing companies here in the Philippines.

I am one of the trainers now here in Manila. I wanted to be part of this community of evangelists and promote this tool more.

Just submitted my pull request: https://github.com/zaproxy/zaproxy-website/pull/329

Thank you, for the continuous great work of zap proxy team!
