The Open Web Application Security Project(OWASP) is a non-profit open community focused on
improving the application software security. Everyone is free to participate in OWASP and all materials available free of cost. This is a best place for learning Application Security.

If you want stay up-to-date with current application security information, always check this site. They have a moderated news feed which gathers application security related news from various source. To subscribe to the news simply copy this link into your news reader. there is a list of sites available here from where OWASP gathers the news.

OWASP Project is the best place if you want to show your skills and to help others. Everyone
is allowed to start or contribute for a project. Some of the projects which I found here is:1. OWASP AntiSamy Java Project- an API for validating rich HTML/CSS input from users without
exposure to cross-site scripting and phishing attacks 2. OWASP Enterprise Security API(ESAPI) Project - a free and open collection of all the security methods that a developer needs to build a secure web application and many more.

As I said earlier all the documents and tools available here are free to download. You can
download your favorite project's tools and documents. here is the link for OWASP software
and documentation repository. Depending upon the projects you choose you will redirected to other third pary servers for download.

The OWASP AppSec conference series is dedicated to bringing together industry, government,
and security researchers and practitioners to discuss the state of the art in application security. Conference schedule details are available in the site. Check the schedule and take part in the conference.

A collection of good videos and books are also available for free download. I really like the design and layout of the site. It look like a clone of Wikipedia.
