Watch the video below for an in-depth overview of the Pi'd Hacker Experience!

What Is the Pi'd Hacker Experience?

When you join the Pi’d Hacker Experience, we will provide you with access to instructional resources and video lessons with notiaPoint CEO Nathan Riley to teach you how and why you can hack just about anything.

In the first few weeks of the program, you’ll receive instructions detailing:

  • •  foundational knowledge about cybersecurity and the cybesrecurity industry
  • •  scientific principles for research and development
  • •  social engineering essentials to help you understand how hackers think
  • •  how to engineer your new hardware and image an "Olympiad" militarized (both offensive and defensive) architecture for your Raspberry Pi
  • •  Linux basics and how command line code works to give you the foundation you need to fully customize your miniature computer

You will also be invited to our private Discord server where you can ask questions, receive support and network with other Pi’d Hackers.

After building foundational knowledge about cybersecurity and your new tech, you will embark on your career adventure with a DIY cybersecurity job role role-playing game!

Choose your own adventure as you enter the Office of the CISO and act out real-world scenarios in four different career paths – security architect, malware analyst, penetration tester, and SOC (security operations center) analyst/data scientist.

Opt for the difficulty that suits you, and create an experience that helps you engineer a future you'll be proud of.  (Casual, Standard, and Hope for the Hardcore difficulty options are available for each job role, so you can jump into this experience regardless of your existing technical skill level.)
