Wow what a great event, i returned from Algarve, Portugal the saturday morning. I met a lot of interesting people, and i had a very good times.

Thursday morning, i gave my presentation about WebSlayer, i started 4 talks before schedule, so they catch me a little off guard. Everything went smooth after i managed to make the microphone works :P

There were 2 other guys from Argentina, Arturo "Buanzo" Busleiman a very well known security expert, and Fabio Cerrullo a great person.

The place was very beautiful, but i hadn't enough time to visit the city, we were working from 8:00hs to 20:00hs , really very exhausting, but was fruitful.

Giorgio Fedon pulled a good working group about Web Malware, the idea was to start working in a document to splash the different kind of web attacks the malware use, and how a company can protect from them.

The thursday night the OWASP Band played some great tunes, it was incredible how good they were, taking into account that they never played together!

Seven committees were created to face different projects and issues, this is very interesting because a layer of middle management was needed, to handle all the heavy work and organization.

Regards to everyone that made this possible, in special Paulo Coimbra and Dinis Cruz, because without their effort this wouldn't happened.

The full results of the summit will be captured and released as a report from OWASP in the next few weeks.

Now there is a lot of work to do :)
