Hey guys, I stumbled across this hacking forum and really want to be a part of it!

I simply don't know where to start with understanding everything about hacking due to my inexperience, although I am extremely eager to learn!

I am quite familiar with programming although I want to learn more and simply expand my knowledge, please link me with any useful links on where to begin!

Feel free to share how you guys joined the community and how you learned any hacking knowledge you now contain! 

Thanks a lot :)

1) Learn how a network actually works.

 

2) Learn to use google. No I'm not being rude. Learning how to google properly is a life saver.

 

3) Setup a home testing lab using virtual box or some such and away you go.

 

There is a topic in here that also may help:

Thanks for the response I have been using the link to my benefit! 

I have tried to set up a virtual box although I can't ever get it to work, it gives me an error every time I try to finish a download although I have followed various tutorials. . .

Hay,

I'm a visual learner so I prefer watching others to gain knowledge. Here's a few play lists and people that I used to learn something new.

Michael Ossman the maker of the HackRF has a intro to SDR video series.

Cyberspectrum is a SDR meet-up group that hosts a lot of good talks about radio applications and hacking.

LiveOverflow, Covers backwards engineering and how exploits work.

Another thing I would recommend is to go to Vulnhub (https://www.vulnhub.com) and start poking at the VM's. They even have howto guides if you get stuck. Grate way to see how other's go about attacking something.
