      Thinking about taking this course:

      http://securitytube-training.com/certifications/securitytube-python-scripting-expert/?id=video

      any one out there had experience with them? does this helps in the security field?

      Thanks

      It was just released a couple of days ago, so there probably isn’t anyone who can provide a comprehensive review at this point (the second half of the course was just released this morning). However, Vivek does consistently put out high-quality material, and several people here, including myself, have signed up for this. The syllabus definitely covers practical, real-world Python usage, so you will likely find it beneficial.

      There’s another thread with some more details here: http://www.ethicalhacker.net/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,54/topic,8695

      Yep, the courses that security tube puts out are typically the best resource you will find for their price.

      just keep in mind that your getting the course for the knowledge and the cert means very little in the real world.

      I signed up for the course.  The cert is a nice bonus, but yeah the skills/knowledge is my aim.

      I’ve watched a couple of videos from the course so far and I can definitely say this is looking good (admittedly I am not a programmer). As was said above, SecTube always pumps out quality material and I’m sure this course will give me a strong foundation in python that will only augment my progression in infosec.

      You might be thinking of the Joe McCray course. This one has been on pre-order for awhile, and the videos were just released this week.

      Has anyone taken the course? If so, can you please provide some sort of “small” review. I’m very interested in purchasing the course (not really for the certification but the 9 hours of video).

      Could you please explain why you believe it’s better to learn Perl over Python? I’d be interested to know. From what I’ve read on the forums the general consensus would suggest that Python would be the better choice.

      ofcourse python is much useful and better than perl but perl is easier and for beginner it gives u the idea about exploition and so on.

      I’ll counter that, much prefer python, and from my experience I’d definitely question the thinking behind Perl being easier for a beginner.

      My reasoning is largely non-technical; I find some of Perl’s idiosyncrasies a nightmare to get my head around, especially if I’ve not coded for a while and need to knock a quick script up. In comparison as Python’s syntax and formatting focuses on whitespace, most Python code looks and feels similar when trying to come back and update something later.

      I’m not a developer by any stretch of the imagination, but I can generally write code (badly) in any language. I’d suggest just picking a language that feels comfortable and starting there, if you need to change to a different language a lot of what you learn will be transferable (I started with VB and PHP, yuck).

      For a beginner I’ve been suggesting python purely based on the additional support and guidance available through the securitytube resources.

      Python and Perl can do exactly the same. Why would Python be more useful than Perl ?

      Why does Perl gives you a better idea for exploitation?

      Perl is not at all easier for a beginner, Perl is more confusing than Python.

      Your post doesn’t make any sense to me, do you program in both languages to make such a statement ?

      I feel like you’re just spitting one liner statements here without any experienced funding.

      I programmed Perl back in my ‘school days’, and now MUCH prefer python.  The language, as a whole, is simpler to follow and understand, and there are plenty of resources available.

      See if you can find (or buy) a copy of the following:

      http://www.manning.com/sande/   (Hello World, by Sande)

      While it’s written for teaching kids, it takes concepts like basic game creation, and teaches around them, so you don’t get uber bored.  I know plenty of folks, whom I’ve recommended it to, who have used it for a fast, ‘up-to-speed’ reference, and it’ll get you started, quickly.  I have a copy, somewhere (just moved, and not unpacked, yet), that I occasionally peek into, if I need a quick, basic reminder.

      as i said over and over python is newer and better and more useful but i started with perl and im not sad coz i learnt exploitation with it. It gives me idea about how to write exploits thats all i agree with all of u
