      well, I’m just going to start the new job for now. I will see how it goes, I will try to become the best I can be.

      when I’m bored I will take it from there…

      I’m still going through all the level at the hackingdojo so that will keep me busy as well.  😉

      Congratulations haxrbyte  🙂

      Unfortunately, HackingDojo alone, would for many not result in a job directly, but I’m very glad on your behalf.  ;D

      I’ve had a long struggle to get a foot within InfoSec, and so far that is only in the voluntary world. However, on the other side, it’s some of the best company I’m with, so I’m glad that I at least have that  😉

      Congrats again haxrbyte

      @pozer69: Nice!  🙂

      I’m just curious though, how much you got paid to advertise hackingdojo. Not so subtle.. lol.

      Considering the person that started the Hacking Dojo, and some students hang out here. Haxrbyte probably didn’t get paid at all.

      I know I haven’t been paid for the praising I’ve done for it.

      Nah, with only having 6 posts, it just sounds like you are new, I wasn’t trying to shoot you down. I was just pointing out some things you didn’t know.

      I think it’s a decent class / program.

      Chris,

      Considering the changes made over the last month or so, would you still consider this a good program?

      haxrbyte,

      other than your current (new) job, what is your level of experience in the Information Security world? Relatively little? Or do you have a background in it prior to HackingDojo?

      Things like Tom’s relative absence from Shodan classes in favor of having another student who just recently passed his Shodan exam teach the class. Chris just mentioned that he had given the courses lots of praise in the past and I was wondering if that had changed. I’ve heard a great deal from current students in the past 6 weeks regarding a change in the environment and I was curious if it had affected anyone else’s opinion.

      To be completely honest, I still think it’s a great program. Having former students teaching it is a good thing. or at least goes along with concept of a Dojo, where more advanced students teach the lower ranks. It gives them experience talking to people and dealing with being asked questions.

      That said, I think it’s a little early, for it. I personally would have waited a year before starting that. Just to build the ranks better. But learning to teach, is now part of the course and I applaud that.

      However, due to my time constraints, I don’t think I’m getting everything out of the the class I could be. I have been questioning whether or not to stick it out. I have some serious time crunches going on and miss a lot of classes.

      But I still think it’s a good class for those just getting into it. it teaches them a basic skill that I think too many people maybe missing out on. Professional Hacking isn’t just about going out and doing it, it’s about having a method, being able to repeat the results, and showing the work in the report.

      FWIW, I’m a new student with HackingDojo.com and haxrbyte is actually my teacher for the novice-level class (1R); *waves*.  As far as the presence/absence of Thomas, I should point out that while we interact with our direct teacher, we actually also get access to a video version recorded by Thomas as well, so we can hear the material presented to us in two different styles.  So far (really early into the n00b class, mind), that’s been more than enough to help the material come across.

      I have recently got my break into the security industry and I must say I think the hackingdojo helped me. The only experience I had was the OSWP course everything else has pretty much come from hackingdojo and research. I started off with the Mukyu class and now taking the Shodan exam.

      The company who interviewed me was impressed that I was spending my own money and working on my skills. Also some of the question they asked me I knew because they were covered in the classes like what are the problems with LM hashes.

      I also think having students teach other students is excellent. As they can give another view. I also know the other student who teaching has experience and he is not just someone who has goes up through the ranks of the classes. He does hold some other certificates.
