Your Work

Hey Guys

I was wondering how old you guys are and what are your jobs (like Sysadmin, etc) and what skills do you have (like languages).

Am 16 and still a student. VB.NET, C++ C# ( Little ), Python, Ruby, Perl ( Little ), PHP, Web Designing ( HTML, CSS, JAVASCRIPT ), Assembly ( Moving A Bit Higher ), Batch, Bash and ... ? Others i cannot express.

i am 16 and currently studying to become an electrician, but i hope to get a job in programming/hacking later.

C# (quite a lot), C++ (quite a lot, but not as much as C#), C, some Assembly, quite familiar with Batch and Bash, and very little Python.

i don't know why, but i don't seem to learn programming languages very fast.

other than that, I'm very good with electricity and electronics (maybe that's why i don't learn programming languages so fast? too busy with hardware...), and i try to implement that in hacking. my most famous, but failed attempt was mounting a raspberry pi on my drone to make some kind of flying cyber-war machine. but like i said, it failed :D

Have you ever checked out Samy Kamkar's work? He's an awesome security researcher (author of the Samy worm), and he also did the following project, which your "flying cyber-war machine" reminded me of: http://samy.pl/skyjack/

my "flying cyber-war machine" was actually based on his project.

I'm only 14 and currently in my high school's marching band so I juggle hacking/programming with learning my songs. I know a small bit of php and html but I mostly use python and assembly. I am in the process of learning C++ but I hardly have time to learn it now.

assembly and python? aren't these 2 like opposites of eachother? nice.

Yeah! I like a little bit of a challenge!

I'm 16, currently home educated and aiming for a career as a robotics engineer.

I mainly do digital electronics, though some analogue stuff as well, and I like studying theory of high power electronics.

Builder of robots, GPS trackers, and, once, an IoT chessboard :P

I mainly use programming to facilitate electronics, mainly through Raspberry Pi and Arduinos, but I'm a fairly competent Linux user and enjoy a bit of pentesting when I have time.

great! i didn't know i had another brother in electronics so close!

Nice thx for all the nice replies dudes :D

I am also a student myself. Got progamming experience in severel languages. In addition to that, I am building websites for companies too.

Robotics? Thats pretty damn nice man :D

Oh god i feel old seeing your answers.

23, Sysadmin slowly moving to a more security oriented career, learning by myself in order to take security certifications (already have some system ones for linux and solaris )

Haha, 23 aint bad. It isn't about the age actually but what you can do during that age. You're a sysadmin and thats very cool. Hope to become one someday. I will give a lot of policies though, That strict sysadmin, I think everybody will hate me.

You guys feel old!?!?! I'm 31.
