• To learn to hack, you’ve got to run a UNIX-like OS, such as Linux. UNIX and UNIX-like operating systems are the internet kind of operating system. You cannot be an Internet hacker without a perfect understanding of UNIX.

• The next thing to do is to start writing HTML. If you don’t know how to program yet, you can learn the basic HyperText Mark-Up Language then you start building your proficiency in its use. For example, start by opening the page source on your browser, then go to a web developer in Firefox and spend ample time observing the code.

• Next step is to learn some basic programming language. Just like before you dabble into writing poems, you must have learned basic grammar the same in hacking. A good way to start is by learning python since it is well documented and user friendly.

• When you are vast in Python, you can then advance to learning Java, then Java script.
