Hello there 😊, I am Shalinda Fernando. I’m really passionate about coding & application security when I was around 16 years old.
I was into coding after watching some of the coding tutorials made by Bucky Roberts (The creator of TheNewBoston YouTube channel). The way he taught coding was impressive and I liked it. I really felt the power of programming.
After coding for something (a year or 2) I faced some issues. Security issues to be precise. So I had to learn how to fix them. Later after learning more and more security-related concepts I was fond of it. I participated in CTF (Capture the Flag) programs, bug bounties, hanging around with the infosec security community folks who are fond of technology same as me. I felt like “Man I’m a part of this. I’m really enjoying this 💯. I should do this forever 🙌”.
TryHackMe is an amazing platform to practice and improve your cybersecurity skills. It offers you minified gaming sort of challenges to help you learn in a unique style. I got to say I really enjoy the learning experience I had with TryHackMe.
