by Yan "zardus" Shoshitaishvili,

Summary : Imagine that you are just starting out in cybersecurity. You know C, you might even know some assembly, but how do you take the first step toward learning to pwn? You might try to participate in CTF competitions, but most CTF competitions are designed to challenge knowledgeable people in the field. You might try wargames, but wargames are extremely self-guided, and don't come with educational material to help you succeed. What to do? You're in luck! Yan and Connor from Arizona State University have created pwn.college, a first-stage education platform for students (and other interested parties) to learn about, and practice, core cybersecurity concepts through lectures, Q&A sessions, office hours, and LOTS of challenging but approachable practice problems! Head on over to https://pwn.college, don your white belt, and begin your cybersecurity journey!pwn.colledge:pwn.college is a first-stage education platform for students (and other interested parties) to learn about, and practice, core cybersecurity concepts in a hands-on fashion. It is designed to take a “white belt” in cybersecurity to becoming a “yellow belt”, able to approach (simple) CTFs and wargames. The philosophy of pwn.college is “practice makes perfect”. pwn.college was created by Zardus (Yan Shoshitaishvili) and kanak (Connor Nelson) at Arizona State University. It powers ASU’s Computer Systems Security course, CSE466, and is now open, for free, to participation for interested people around the world!
