Hacker Academy is a meetup for anyone interested in what white-hat hackers do, how to become one, and for developers who want to write more secure web applications. HackerOne software engineers Ivan Malykh and Philip Kocanda introduce people of all skill levels to the world of ethical hacking and point out the importance of internet security. During Google’s Digital X event last month, Hacker Academy was part of the side program, with a series of workshops. “We had our first meetup in May”, Ivan says. “Hacking is something you can learn on your own, but it’s much more fun in a group of likeminded people, and of course you can also get extra help.”
