Crouching Noob, Hidden Talent

Could some more wise forum members recommend sites, or books to read up about ANY area of hacking that seems mainstream at all? Basically anything i could end up using. IE Javascript, SQL injections... I'm learning Visual Basic so anything related to that would also be appreciated.

Thanks

Teaching yourself vis basic? Alot of people say it's a bad place to start, but I started on it and I haven't gone to far wrong (I hope) however if you start playing with vis basics syntax it's quite confusing to change to C, which I'm working on now.
As for learning the absolute basics, Javascript and Html are a must. I recommend w3schools.com for that, just work your way through the html and javascript (and Php if you want more) I found they're really beginner friendly.
If you're sticking with Visual Basic I suggest a good book, I learnt it through the school and that was pretty easy however it was a while ago. From memory VB has quite a good help menu, it actually makes sense! If you ever want to move into C I recommend Beej's programming tutorials (Just google them)
As for SQL Injections, perhaps http://www.securiteam.com/securityrevie ... 1P76E.html I think thats the one I learnt from, it looks like its worth reading.
For further learning post here asking something specific, PM me or use google. Google's your best friend!

Yea i agree with above....
Start with common languages such as HTML/JS and OO languages such as Python...then work ure way up to C etc...
If u wanting to learn about different things i recommend:
http://amitmathur.8m.com/ebooks.html
http://ebooks-info.imess.net/c_cpp.htm
http://burks.bton.ac.uk/burks/docs.htm
http://rahmat.zikri.com/books.html

These are all pretty good sources for information, on just about anything...If u find anything interesting..let me know

Goodluck

Fantasticly informative you two, Thanks.

Iv book marked all the web pages you both mentioned etc, and will start sifting through them. I'm learning Visual Basic at College (Computing A-level), though im learning more by myself as the pace at college is a little slow in terms of the programming.

OO Languages...Google is telling me about object orientation etc etc. Seems to make sense.. Don't understand one bit though. Could you give me an example of programs that use OO languages? And / or how they do so.

Thanks for your help so far chaps, good work.

with OO languages you must be referring to object oriented languages right.object oriented is a programming methodology that makes programming big huge programs much easier.it uses features such as inheritance encapsulation and polymorphism
they are basically catch phrases and the basic idea behind them are easy grasp.OO languagers are java, c# ,ad C++ etc...

OO languages are like nirVaan said, are languages that are used designed off breaking big programs up into smaller segments (classes).

They make alot of code, a lot easier to manage.
