About the GitHub Security Meetups

The GitHub Security meetups are great occasions to connect with other security researchers or developers, by discussing all things security, sharing tips and tricks for writing CodeQL queries, discussing variant analysis and other security research techniques, integrating with developer and security response workflows, and more.

The format of the meetups is somewhat casual, with :

  • Lightning Talks - Several short talks (10-15min).
  • Networking - Plenty of time to mingle and discuss around some drinks and appetizers
