I've been programming since childhood, and professionally since about 1999. I've been on the defensive side of security for a long time, but found I could learn a lot more from the offensive side. I'm newer to Offensive Security, but it really does help from the defensive standpoint if you really learn what's going on. I don't have a lot to say about myself, but this course really is a good one, and I got involved to help HFC, I think it's a great cause. I also think that all people involved with computers professionally in any way should learn about hardware, software, networks, security, and anything else they can get their hands on. I've found the more you know about the whole process the more sense each individual part of the puzzle makes.
