Learn Anything: Universal Techniques to Support the Learning Process
Anyone can learn any new skill, yet many approach a topic with the thought “I could never do that”. Time and again, people fall victim to this attitude and allow obstacles to learning to overwhelm them. Overcoming these obstacles can seem impossible. However, establishing a learning mindset and adopting some universal techniques can change the way we approach learning and personal growth.
CrYpT has had a curious mind since he was a child, when he enjoyed taking things apart and discovering how they worked. It was this curiosity that drove him to study a variety of topics. He has spent over two decades in information security and technology, touching a wide range of technologies and techniques. He has gone from creating IT infrastructures for large companies to penetration testing nuclear facilities and hacking vehicles.
CrYpT enjoys giving back to the InfoSec community through his volunteer work at SaintCon, DerbyCon, and DEF CON among others where he has served as a CFP review board member, a keynote speaker, a workshop instructor, and contest runner.
His passion for learning recently pushed him to help create Curious Codes, a company focused on teaching and sharing recreational cryptography through conferences, conventions, schools, television shows, and more.
