Well, probably not web developer type. More like software engineer or game programmer


You're still probably looking at C++ and Java.

Well, really what I want programming for is hacking.


I really hope you meant white hat hacking and not black hat hacking.
Some languages good for that are; C, C++,SQL, Perl, Javascript and Ruby and a bucketload of software and good understanding of windows and unix programming.

Well, if he understands the term "Hacking" actually means white-hacking in general, we're good. But if he intended it for Cracking. Well, then, um. Uh-oh.

Not malicous black-hat hacking. I don't want to be a cracker.

That is #3 on my list. The knowledge is power, the internet is a wealth of knowledge. If you can control it, you rule all.


Very true.

yeah:

-C
-C++
-Assembly
-SQL
-JavaScript
-Ruby
-Perl
-PHP
-Unix system knowledge.. probably the hardest bit. I've already got ubuntu linux 12.04 btw.

I think that seems like a decent list?

It is not bad but slightly overwhelming and Java is a good language to know. I would stick with C++ or Java till you reach a level where you can make almost anything you want to. Then probably branch out. JavaScript PHP&MSQL you can learn at the same time. Perl and Ruby should not be as hard after you full master C++.

That is nice but you need to open the terminal and start doing things. Installing new packages or software will be the first thing you will need to do.

yeah.. I've done quite bit in the terminal so far. I've even had to ./configure && make &&make install some things like nemesis(packet injection) and few other things. So not too bad on that.

btw.. how do you read sudo?

is it soo-doo or soo-doe?

C++ will take a long time though.

I recently heard about Sockets? How does that work

I say "sue do"--as in "Sue do the dishes"

Everything worthwhile does. It might take a thousand hours or more to truly master it or becoming highly competent with it. But that includes learning the programming paradigm with it. Next language won't take nearly as long. Since you build on the base of what you know and not create the base which requires more effort.

No, I don't know much about networking and not a class I'm planning to take. So I won't be able to help you much. Be warned networking is a third year class that has data structures, linear algebra and calculus I as the prerequisite in most universities. It might be out of your scope right now.
