It always feels good when someone comes to you and says that he actually finds your work useful and likes it. It’s not because you ask them for the appreciation but it’s more like that you realize that what you do has contributed something valuable to others. That is what I am going to share with you right now, a SLAMPP showcase written by a SLAMPP user. Of course through this entry I would encourage other users to share their own stories on what they have done with SLAMPP and what they think about it. I will publish your stories here.
This showcase was actually written and submitted to me last year by Brian Papile from Texas. Although he already gave me the permission, unfortunately, I was not able to publish it in a timely manner. My apologies for that. FYI, Brian used SLAMPP as training material for his web application security class. I was absolutely amazed that he could master and customize SLAMPP within a short period of time and then finally shared the work to his class. Well done!
Please read his full story by downloading this PDF file. I hope it could inspire other users to do the same.
As last note, if you are interested to get a copy of his work, please contact me.
Thanks all for your contribution to SLAMPP. Much appreciated.
Now, I will focus on the next release which has been delayed for a while.
Note: This is a reposted article. You can read the original entry over here.
In the last few months I’ve gathered some links that may trigger your interest. Most of them are IT and FOSS related and only one is from Oil and Gas sector. Yes, it is sometimes hard to share Oil and Gas resources because of the closed and competitive nature of the business and copyrights/trademarks or other Intellectual Property Rights issues. And I don’t want to get in trouble by doing that for sure. I hope you will get some benefits from the following links.
IT and FOSS
