Recently, I asked a question about learning ethical hacking. https://discuss.codecademy.com/t/complete-ignoramus-looking-for-advice-on-ethical-hacking-d/417600/9
I also discussed it with my dad, who is not a hacker but pretty good with computers. He said one of the main roadblocks I am up against is that I don’t really understand computers and operating systems.
He’s totally right. If somebody starts talking something like Linux vs. OS X, my eyes glaze over and I go find something else to do before my brain shuts down completely.
So my question is, where do I start? You can assume I know nothing, because that’s pretty much accurate!
Thanks in advance!
