Sharing Another Talk with the Community

Me, delivering this talk for the first time, on stage.

Three years ago I decided that I would share most of my talk content with my community (everything that I am not currently applying to conferences with). At the time, I only shared one, because…. I ran out of time. Now it’s time to share the second talk, “Security is Everybody’s Job!” By “share” I mean give my express permission for anyone, anywhere, to present content that I have written, with no need to pay anything or ask for my consent. You can even charge money to give the talk! Please, just teach people about security.

In efforts to ensure anyone who presents my material has a good experience I made a GitHub repo with an instructional video of what to say, a readme file with written instructions and links so you can watch me do the talk myself.

I’ve had a few people ask me why I would do this, and there are a few reasons.
* To spread the word about how to secure software; it’s important to me to try to make the internet and other technologies safe to use.
* To help new speakers (especially from underrepresented groups). If they have something they can present, with instructions they can follow, hopefully it will help make them more confident and skilled at presenting.
* To share knowledge with my community in general: sharing is caring, yo.
* The more people who present my talk the more people who may decide to follow me. SO MUCH WIN!

You can give this talk at any IT meetup, especially DevOps, InfoSec or any software development meetup.

Please go forth and teach AppSec! And if you have feedback I want to hear it!
