I don't know if I asked you, but I assume you do programing... The closest I've gotten is using op codes to hack progs. I like unpacking the exe. file and seeing what made it tick.

Peace!
You can probably do programming too if you can unpack/disasm.

This is a great resource for learning the basics with Python. It's got some hands on stuff built into the online textbook.
Great resource. I bookmarked it. I've been using some other resources as well. Here are some that I began using.

http://www-inst.eecs.berkeley.edu/~cs61a/su13/index.html#resources

I'm subbed to all of these universities because they provide open source lectures and materials. All the homework etc. Very easy to follow as well.

<--- Lecture #1 Computer Science 61A
They use Python to teach this course.

I've tried (maybe not hard enough) to get into this. Once I learned how to trick the call instruction, I was fat and happy.

Peace!

Here is a related book that covers more territory though maybe with less depth. My problem with programming books is getting bored with minutia rather than learning cool things to make computers do.

Python for Informatics

and there are videos:


and then there is this:

Violent Python
https://www.ethicalhacker.net/features/book-reviews/book-review-violent-python

The intro to the language is pretty abrupt so the first book is better.

My sticking point was shift registers, That is why I nopped most of the time....it was easier.:lol:

And then there is The GUI!

http://www.ferg.org/thinking_in_tkinter/all_programs.html

It is really annoying to write a command line program that no one will use because it is not GUI.

And then you must do three times as much work just to make it a GUI.

Kill Users! Kill Users! Kill Users! Kill Users! Kill Users!

Um

PS - Sorry, I just had to get that out of my system.
