The Pwn School Project
The Pwn School Project was created out of the desire to offer free pentesting/ethical hacking education to the public. This project was created to give back to the hacking and InfoSec community as well as inspired by the Dallas/Fort Worth community. The ethical hacking subject is relatively new in most universities and community colleges and commercial courses can be too expensive and too advanced for those new to the subject. The founder of The Pwn School Project, Phillip Wylie is a pentester and adjunct professor with 6 plus years of dedicated pentesting experience and 21 years of IT/sys admin, InfoSec and AppSec experience. Phillip got started teaching due to his passion for sharing information. Phillip has mentored and shared his knowledge and resources to up and coming pentesters, and InfoSec professionals. Teaching has allowed him to teach and share on a broader scale. Pwn School is way to extend this teaching and sharing by holding classes. These classes are lead by Phillip and other experts in the profession and the hacker/InfoSec community. The goal is to eventually offer training materials and lessons that can be done outside of the regularly scheduled classes. The training will cover from basic to advanced hacking and pentesting concepts.
