How to be a Hacker? How do I be a hacker? Where should I start hacking? How to hack?
These are a few question that everybody searches on web. People wonder about hacking because of the hollywood effect that movies made on them. Super fast writing on keyboard, fast scrolling green text screens made hacking look like magic.
Let’s come to the real life. How far can you go with a bunch of skills? What real hacking provides you? If you have questions like this then you should watch Mr. Robot TV Show.
The great thing about this TV Show that it provides the reality of hacking.
You Should Read: Hacking Techniques Used On Mr. Robot
So now, you should probably understand the main concept of hacking. It’s all about making skills and using various strategies.
Before all the technical stuff let’s learn what a “hacker” means:
“A person who has a huge knowledge and skills about computers”
As you can understand learning is very important and the main question, Where should you start to be a hacker?
Actually, this is a too general question but since you are a beginner you gotta start from somewhere, remember that I said making skills.
Watch the Vlog video I made about “Where To Start Hacking?”

Important thing that you should do is using an open source operating system, linux. I suggest you to download and install Ubuntu which is a great linux distribution to understand linux basics.
You can find some tutorials on web, shows how to install it or run it virtually on virtual machines.
So you got your linux ready, now you can learn some command line commands, press ctrl + alt + t to open terminal. You can learn some commands on: linuxcommand.org
Learning a programming language should be one of the skills you should gain.
Thinking about this brings great questions, Which programming language should you learn?
Python, because it is easy and useful. A great start point for anyone that wants be a hacker. How can you learn Python? Just search on the web. Internet is a huge database to learn anything you want.
Here is a simple Python code:
print "this code prints text"
Simple right? Yeah.
You can go to python.org
It is great to get familiar with command line because a lot of hacking tools are running on command line.
Learning Python at the same time will boost your creativity. You can write Python codes on Command Line and run them there immediately.
This was a first step for becoming a hacker, time will show you what to learn and I recommend you to never try to see the things on the second floor without using the stairs first 😉
