Who are you?
Hey! I'm just a directionless Computer Science student looking for interesting communities to join. I'm somewhat interested in networking and a little bit of web development, though I'm just a beginner when it comes to those topics.
Can you program? If yes, what languages?
Yes. I'm mostly familiar with C++ and Python, though also familiar with stuff like Lua and Bash. Also using HTML, CSS and JS for webdev. I'm not particularly knowledgeable in any one of them, but I'd like to improve.
How'd you find us?
I was casually perusing a board on Lainchan, and came across the URL in a thread.
How long have you been interested in computers/infosec?
I had a passing interest when I was younger, but only recently in university did I actually become interested. I used to play text-based Multi-User Dungeons four years ago, and the client I had supported client-side scripting in Lua for QoL/PvP automation, and so I learned some programming skills from that experience, and gradually developed an interest in computers in general. At 21 I suppose I'm late to the party so I'm still catching up to speed.
Infosec-wise, I recently read Brian Krebs' investigative report on the guy behind the Mirai botnet, and my interest was very much piqued as well.
Great to meet you all, and I look forward to learning things here!
