I really came here to tell you about this free course that I'm currently going though. Before we get there though let me catch you up...
May really crept up on me. I don't really know what I was expecting because it comes at the same time every year but here we are. This time last year I was preparing for one of the greatest breaks of my life (attending my sibling's graduation), but this year I'm preparing for test and life changes. I feel like I'm not really giving things my all so I've been trying to figure out how to readjust/recondition myself (thanks Hank!). Going through this I've decided to so 3 things: Get more serious about passing the AWS SAA, get back on my security game, and get back to actively practicing mobile development.
AWS is...a thing. I'm not too worried with my progress there. I really want to focus on using new things in Android or Flutter, and getting more comfortable with security tools. That being said I'm going to make time to stream more mobile stuff after work on Twitch and Youtube. I want people to see that I'm always learning too and feel free to learn with me or ask questions. With security I want to take the complete opposite approach and write. I mentioned before that a big part of security is being able to write reports. That is what I want to put my effort into. All the reports are going to be on this here blog and my goal is to break down what I've done so well that anyone can replicate it and learn. Seems like a big task but I think I can do it.
So what is this free course? Glad you asked! There is this tool called Autopsy used for DFIR (Digital Forensics & Incident Response). The creator took his $495 class and made it free until June 1st during these times. So far I really like it. It's a mix of video and labs that are easy to follow. There are also quizzes too as a "make sure you know" type of thing. If you are thinking you want to try out digital forensics this course is a good start. Well that's all I got so happy learning!
