My presentation on October 30 was a defining moment. I showcased my project, the OWASP Top 25 Parameters, which I began developing in my mid-teens and eventually transferred to OWASP in 2023, thereby stepping into the role of an OWASP Project Leader. The presentation covered the intricate details of the project, its evolution over the years, and its impact on the field.
