. I joined this forum quite a while ago and have skimmed through it a lot but never took the plunge to properly introduce myself. I feel very intimidated by all the 1337$ on this forum that i never wanted to ask a stupid question lol. So i need to know the steps i need to take in order to get to a 1337 status ( i know its going to take years to get there ). I figured after reading a lot of posts learning a language should be priority one, so i just installed python on both my mac and netbook pc. Purchased a python book and basically just got to the table of contents. I don't know any professional 1337$ personally, so this is my first question to any one willing to look at me and lay out goal by goal advice for my journey. Thank you for this forum and I hope to one day be a help to it as well.
