What do you go by / What are your common aliases?
I've gone by a lot of aliases in the past, this has been my alias for the last couple months on freenode
What are your skill sets?
My strongest skillset is in GNU/Linux and networking. I am currently self teaching myself C++ because I've always wanted to learn how to program. Its something that i've put off for a long time. Right now im using codwars.com to practice.
What are you interested in?
System administration, pentesting, programming, security
Are you an Info. Sec./Comp. Sci. professional or just a hobbyist?
I am a hobbyist at the moment, currently learning security as a way to protect my own networks and for the challenge of it. I am going to be going to school for network administration this fall. After I get my associates, then I will be a professional
What do you hope to gain from this community?
I hope to learn how to program better, and I hope to learn some stuff about security that I didn't know before.
What do you hope to contribute to this community?
I can give what knowledge I have to any new users that come around, I'm still pretty newby but once I start coding more I would like to work on some projects with all of you some of you are a talented bunch.
How'd you find us?
I found you on a reddit post about Linux shellcoding for beginners. I've been lurking since then and just decided to make an account once I felt like I wanted to actually be more than a lurker.
Hope to work and learn some stuff with all of you, see you on the IRC!
