A request to all members! (Compiled list of resources)

Hi guys  :D

Its been a very long time since I've posted but I assure you that I've been watching the community from time to time, from the shadows. (My interest to learn to become a hacker(white hat has just increased)

Anyway,

As I'm a beginner struggling to break into the IT field, I request all members of the community to share their resources with everybody.

Please post all the resources that you have found to be useful or those which have helped you in your journey as a pen-tester or as a general skilled computer user.

Here are the following topics which I would like you guys to post your resources:

1) Operating Systems  (Client and server)

a) Windows 
b) Linux
c) Backtrack

2) Programming

a) web designing and web related
b) scripting&programming
c) bash& assembly

3) Networking

4) Hardware

5) Databases

6) System administration


Please keep in mind the following:

NOTE:

1) MENTION THE HEADING(from the above) BEFORE YOU POST YOUR RESOURCES AND ALSO MENTION IN BRACKETS WHETHER IT IS BASIC OR ADVANCED.

2) RESOURCES MENTIONED MAY INCLUDE LINKS TO WEBSITES, E-BOOKS, BOOKS etc.

Once again, this is a plea to the entire community to share their experience.

I speak for many beginners when I say that your vast reserves of experience will prove very, very useful to us all.

Regards,
            - A beginner trying to break into IT and then Security

@Jamie R.

Thanks for mentioning that great website! :D  (I've noticed that you've been quite active recently  ;)


It was very comprehensive and I am sure that it will help people like me a lot.

But, it was a bit more hacking-related then general.

If anyone has some more references to add in the above topics, please add and help in the expansion of this collection. I'm sure if lots of members contribute the collection could become very big and  useful as well.

Could you not just provide a link to your personal site then?

Re: A request to all members! (Compiled list of resources)

Ok, its been a while......(again)

Anyways, maybe I should have made my point a bit clearer.

Could members post those sites(resources) which ARE NOT easily found on the net?

Like if its found on the so called "invisible net". i.e. if you used a particular refined search. If so what was it?

And if its not found on the first page of Google search results or if you found it after lots of toil etc.

Also post those sites you felt were ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL for your development.

Re: A request to all members! (Compiled list of resources)

Instead of trying to find secret sites, your priority should just be staying abreast of current developments. RSS and Twitter are great for this. This will keep you more than busy.

In addition to the list Jamie posted earlier, Paul from PaulDotCom has a list of his RSS feeds here: http://pauldotcom.com/PaulsFeeds.opml

If you haven't already, grab FeedDemon (or whatever RSS reader you prefer) and start building an RSS collection. The link above will get you started, but you'll find your own links to interesting sites over time, and that list will grow. I sync everything with my Google Reader account, so all my RSS readers across various systems and i-devices can stay current.

Twitter is a mixed bag. You might find some interesting discussion if there's breaking news, otherwise it might be a lot of general conversation. In addition to following industry leaders, there are niche accounts like http://twitter.com/ToolsWatch that are pretty useful.

One challenge you'll have to deal with is information overload. You probably won't be able to read every new article or keep up with every tweet. You'll see that a lot of the same information appears in multiple places, and you'll have to come up with your own strategy for how to prioritize and where to draw the line.
The day you stop learning is the day you start becoming obsolete.

Even InterN0T has been on that list almost since its creation, and on that site (forum) you can find a lot of knowledge.

@ajohnson
                Thanks for the great advice!  :D

To tell you the truth, I didn't know about RSS until I read your post. I think its a great way of keeping up with technology and managing links. Up till now, I was using bookmark manager. (pretty lame, I know    :-[)

@Jamie R

I don't have a Twitter account (only fb-and that's pretty useless) but I may get one at the end of this year.

@MaXe
  I tried to find InteNOT and as expected I failed. In the end, I had to use the link next to your post. Thanks for suggesting the site. I went there once but I forgot about it until your post.

If you had copied the exact name from my reply and performed a Google search you would've found the website  ;D Example: https://www.google.com.au/search?hl=en& ... rn0t&gs_l=
