Yep you can code like a hacker too.
How you might ask, I don't have the time or the money to go back to school.
Reading the tutorials on websites take too long and I just don't understand it when reading it.
There is a solution and one that works very well. Some of you may have noticed I have not been as active here as I was. Thats because I am learning Java script. I can now do --if then else --for loops, --functions, --arrays and a bit more (and I am still only 30% done with that course), all in the last 5 days.
I want to introduce http://www.codecademy.com , they offer on-line class's in a number of programs including python and ruby. Unfortunately they don't offer Perl and Bash.
The biggest advantage to this site is that you actually code right there and the site will tell you what needs to be corrected to pass that lesson.
Wait, wait there is even a bigger advantage, its free.
From what I am seeing with the courses I believe that while it wont make you a hacker it will go a long way in moving you from noob skiddie (script kiddie) to intermediate skills in hacking.
