Hello, World! I'm @oaktree, one of the three founders of this wonderful community, 0x00sec!
I first got caught up with all this in the summer of 2015, when a girl pointed me to null-byte. Then I was hooked. I made an account and started posting and commenting. Then, I joined the IRC.
But something happened. OTW left Null Byte. Some of us (@pry0cc, @unh0lys0da and others) were kinda pissed about it so we decided to make a new place for us all to come and talk about hacking and computer science. Thus, 0x00sec was born. Two weeks later, I'm formally introducing myself to the entire community, which consists of over 40 registered users at the time of this posting.
Who am I, though?
I'm a teenager who likes Computer Science and information security, but mainly CS. I intend to major in CS. I spend a lot of time programming, and my goal is to help teach others through this site.
You'll find me on ##0x00sec often. Come talk with all of us on there. It'll be fun and you'll probably learn something.
