I've browsed this site for many years now due to my insatiable desire for learning new things, especially computer related. Thus, I figured it was finally time to make an account, so greetings!
A little about myself:
Though I've never had any formal training or classes on coding/programming/security (or anything about computers really...), I have always found an interest in that type of material. Starting at the age of 9 I started fiddling around with computers and attempting to teach myself the "ins-and-outs" of the basics. Around age 13 I built my first custom desktop computer, assembling the parts, wiring, software, the works. Ever since then I have continued to actively search for new information and teach myself. Over the years I started to fix peoples computers: replacing hardware, computer optimizing, virus removal, etc. Of course, it was for friends, family, and friends of friends, so I never charged any money; I just enjoy doing it.
Anyway, I am excited to be apart of this community and to continue to learn as I am now able to interact with y'all. As someone who hasn't taken formal classes, I'm sure there is plenty of knowledge to obtain from those of you that have! If anyone has materials or sources of information that helped them learn reading code/writing code/interpreting/security/"the-works", please don't hesitate to send it my way! I'm always up for a challenge.
Thank you all!
