What benefits are their to contributing to an open source project? Lots! It enables you to enhance your skills/knowledge, it looks good on your CV, it gets your name/website around, it shows future employers that your dedicated to enhancing the security industry and much more…
What we need:

Get the word out.
How to contribute:
You can contribute by leaving messages on this blog or by emailing . All code/content contributors can have their name/link on the about page in dvwa (if they wish).
I decided to make a video on installing and running dvwa, this is my first video so if I sound nervous its because I am.
Hope you enjoy it…
