What do you go by / What are your common aliases?
SJCaldwell isn't much of an alias, it's pretty much just my name. I use the same username on Github. I've never been able to think of a cool alias, but I also hope that anything I say or do I'm proud of enough to sign my name to it. Or at least not so ashamed I have to change my name... if CJSaldwell joins the board later there's no relation.
What are your skill sets?
I've been working in primarily web application security for a while now, done a little bit of network security in the past. Before that, I was actually working primarily in data science/machine learning. My primary goal is reconciling my machine learning skills with my pentesting skills and seeing what kind of cool stuff I can make.
What are you interested in?
I really want to expand my exploit development capabilities and learn a lot more about networking. I recently completed my OSCP, which taught some basic stack-smashing/tunneling, but I've got a lot more to learn about both topics before I'm sufficient at either of them to be a skilled pentester.
I'm also interested in developing my skills at bug bounty hunting.
Are you an Info. Sec./Comp. Sci. professional or just a hobbyist?
I've been working in the industry for a little over a year now.
What do you hope to gain from this community?
Hoping to meet a lot of people with varied interest/infosec knowledge. Following infosec experts on Twitter is fun and everything, but a community I can interact with/learn from/teach sounds much better for my long term development. I work at a relatively small company, so I don't get to talk to as many people providing a fresh perspective on infosec topics. And my IRL friends are kind of tired of hearing about security...
What do you hope to contribute to this community?
I'd like to participate in thoughtful discussion. Hopefully, I can share what I know about web application security. I'm also always game to be a team member for CTFs!
How'd you find us?
@maderas wrote an absolutely masterful post, which has been getting a lot of airtime on Twitter. After being really impressed by that, I started checking out the community in general.
