I'm tired of having to rely on everyone else's programs to do things. When I think of homebrew, I think of entire user bases contributing to projects for the general public. Now, I want to stop mooching off of others, so i created an account. Fresh out of HS, so ive git nothing but time on my hands for now.... So, how can get started on my own projects and stuff? I also have other questions: 1)what's the best language for a beginner to learn? I've heard Python is good, but can anyone comfirm? 2)I also heard that Linux is the best to start from because its virtually limitation-less (compared to windows/Mac) 3) is it best to learn c or c++ first? 4) is it best to take a course to learn a programming language, or is it best to just teach myself? 5) best place to find open sourced projects? Now I know, I have a dream of being a real hacker, which would take YEARS of learning, but what's also the best way to reverse engineer? Or will the former teach me how? I want to actually have a presence in the hacking community, ya know?
