WHERE:
Jillian's Billiards Club of San Francisco
175 Fourth Street, San Francisco, CA 94103

The training is a FREE service of OWASP, open to anyone interested in securing their code.

Pre-registration is recommended to guarantee a spot in the training, but we will accept walk-ins based on available space. The Happy Hour is open to the public and no registration is required. To register for training, visit: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/free-owasp-training-tickets-10302967453
