Hey /g/, I've been wanting to make this post for a while. I really like tech and computers, obviously. For about 8 years now, I have been tinkering with computers and reading online and watching tutorials here and there. I've picked up a lot, but I never formally learned about computers and how the software and firmware actually works. I know how to get around windows and install operating systems from a USB stick, but have no idea how to use Linux and what gentoo is good for, for example. Here are some things I've picked up or learned so far over the years:

Coding:
>HTML and CSS
>a bit of python (still learning)
>teensy bit of GLua

General usage:
>Basically everything about using Windows, even more intermediate/advanced stuff like permissions
>basic command line experience with Linux and Windows, thanks to raspberry pi
>I know how to modify my system to my liking

Physical Hardware:
>Know every function of every component of a computer, down to the difference between 7200rpm and 5400rpm hdd's
>Have built 3 pc's

Networking:
>Port forwarding and general understanding of what it's for
>have hosted my own game servers for garrys mod, minecraft (sorry), and csgo and have modified lua files (for gmod) to make plugins and assets play nice together

Hacking:
>Doxxing and ip grabbing
>lots of experience with RATs and Crypters


So that's a summary of my knowledge pretty much. Can you guys assess my skill level and point me to where I could possibly learn more about Linux, networking, what the fuck git is and how it works, repositories and how they work, and maybe how to use Kali to further my hacking skills. Sorry for this autistic post, and hope to see some responses.

you're retarded, html and css aren't programming languages, python is shit, you don't know glua and even if you did it's shit, you don't know "everything about windows", "command line experience" is not impressing anyone, moving files != modifying your system, you are using apostrophes incorrectly, you don't know shit about hardware if your most badass example is literally that you know what RPM means, building computers is not hard nor does it impress anyone, following a guide on port forwarding isn't impressing anyone, moving lua files isn't impressing anyone, "doxxing" and "ip grabbing" are both autistic terms for dumb teenagers and if you think they make you a hacker you are stupid, and i seriously doubt you know anything about crypters or viruses/"RATS" beyond how to use them.
git is a source version control protocol and program that is used to manage versions of software, google it.
linux is a kernel for a operating system, networking is an extremely complex topic, and neither of those you will get a quality explanation of on /g/.
kali is for actual skids.
stop minging gmod all day and go learn something useful.

this post made me angry.

Jeez, I thought my OP was autistic. The point of the post IS that I don't know shit, that's why I'm asking where CAN I 'learn something useful'. And I said coding not programming you moron.

no, the point of your post was to look as 'cool' as possible so as to attract someone more intelligent than you, otherwise you would have omitted the things that you KNOW don't make you any less or more good at the things you want to learn.
refer to sticky for information on where to learn things related to technology, specifically the line "i.e. fucking google it".
there is no magical book and nobody here can provide you with the information you seek on /g/ itself unless they want to write out things that there are lengthy college courses on.
if you want to learn to program, go learn c (not c++), if you want to learn networking, google it, stop trying to learn to "hack" until you have extensive knowledge on low level programming languages and computer hardware (this does not mean looking at gpus on the internet), and if you want to learn about "linux" then go to kernel.org, i'm sure they have documentation there.
also, pic related, definition of "coding".
coding and programming are effectively the same thing and you know it.

ok so from a quick skim over that it sounds like you're of pretty average interest

you're obviously far above the 99% facebook browsers but you're not smart

pick a path and follow said path. I'd highly recommend networking, it's a great place to actually get some skills out of and you could land yourself an actual job with it too. Networking can lead into system administration, linux specialist jobs, netsec jobs, etc. There are a lot of skills that come out of it.

Thanks I will go read up on kernel.org and no the point was really to get help. I knew I would be seen as a giant fucking noob, this is /g/.

Thanks a lot, this is the type of response I was looking for.

The first reply did an amazing job and breaking this shit down but here's my version

>HTML and CSS
not programming languages
>a bit of python(still learning)
okay, keep doing that
>teensy bit of GLua
fuck that

>Basically everything about using Windows, even more intermediate/advanced stuff like permissions
you don't know jack shit
>basic command line experience with Linux and Windows, thanks to raspberry pi
might be impressive for a total normie that does not give a flying fuck about technology
>I know how to modify my system to my liking
sure

>Know every function of every component of a computer, down to the difference between 7200rpm and 5400rpm hdd's
made me legit laugh, even without the ridiculous rpm example I'd still know that you don't know shit
>Have built 3 pc's
amazing

>Port forwarding and general understanding of what it's for
"I have to port forward if I want people to connect to my gayming server" is basically what you know
>have hosted my own game servers for garrys mod, minecraft (sorry), and csgo and have modified lua files (for gmod) to make plugins and assets play nice together
12 year old kids can do that (I was one of them)

>Hacking:
Just the use of this word completely disregards anything you have to say on the topic

Basically just git gud and lurk more newfag.

Did you actually need someone else to explain something this obvious to you?

A lot of butthurt over a simple question.

Linux: If you want to know more about linux, the best way is to do. Watch for the friendly linux threads and follow the advice in them. I would start with debian based (ubuntu, kali, etc) distributions.

Coding: While HTML and CSS are not languages, they're still extremely useful if you're getting into web design. Python is a great way to learn, stick with it, and attempt to learn how its interpreter functions. As you learn more about python you're naturally going to run into C, since that is what python compiles down to. C is an amazing language but not built for people just starting out. If you want to get into C awesome I'd say its the next step but it doesn't have nearly the ease/safety net that python has.

Physical hardware: Rasberry Pi /Beagle board / whatever else /g/ is mad about is a good place, doing all of your programming on these will help enforce some idea of how the hardware actually works. Minus RPMs and such. Most of these run linux which should help as well.

Networking: Extremely complex topic, lots of layers (literally). You've done networking on top of the application level, which is a good place to start. If you want to get more into networking you should refer to the OSI Model.

Hacking: lol I wouldn't worry about hacking anything outside of some basic personal security (defensive) for now. You would need to really have a good understanding of coding and networks before you can actually touch security. If you really insist, there are a lot of tools that can help you do some simple shit like cracking WPA.

So above all I'd say you're slightly above average. But average is dog shit when it comes to computers. If you want to know more I'd suggest you RTFD. the sticky has a lot of good resources.

Go into Linux kernel development. There is a famous game around solving little bugs on it which will give you experience with c and git . Also you will get to know a lot about low level stuff that matters. Everybody knows an rpm, or html, python is meant to be that easy and port forwarding is just setting a bunch of options on your router.

What is Stanford and MIT Open Courseware. If you don't have the grades or the money to not be a NEET faggot, look there.
