YouTube: Python + Telnet = Muhahahha!!! (HOPE 2020)


I have released the video lecture that I presented at my Hackers On Planet Earth (HOPE) 2020 conference workshop on using the Telnet Muhahaha! program. The lecture showcases how ancient Telnet can create modern web bots for various purposes. I held my workshop originally on .

For instance, I demonstrate how to create an HTTP (v1.1) bot and an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) bot just by automating Telnet with Python. Feel free to download the program and play around with the open source software code. Enjoy!

Note: Apologies for my bad haircut in the video, but it was during the COVID era of when I was attempting to cut my own hair. (-:

HOPE 2020: Python + Telnet = Muhahahha!!!

Hello to my fellow Hackers On Planet Earth (HOPE) 2020 attendees! I am excited for you to join my workshop on Python + Telnet = Muhahahha!!! that will be held on from - . I've worked hard coming up with a simple and elegant script that can create a few Telnet bots to do some web server recon which then gets reported to an IRC channel of your choice.

It's not required for joining the workshop, but if you want to download, run, and/or modify the code, I have posted it to my Projects page under the fun name of Telnet Muhahaha! under the GNU Affero GPL 3 (AGPLv3) open source software license. I've tested it on Linux and Windows and the program works great. Those that are using a VPN might have issues connecting to some IRC servers. So, that is a network problem and not an issue with my program.

YouTube: SQL Functions and Math (How to Perform Useful Calculations with SQL)


This is a somewhat advanced course on how to write SQL (Structured Query Language) syntax to help you perform useful calculations in a relational database system (e.g., MySQL, Oracle, Microsoft Access, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server, et cetera). This video follows my other lectures on Basic SQL Queries and another one dealing with SQL Multi-Table Queries. Therefore, if you have not yet watched those previous lectures, please view those first unless you feel comfortable writing SQL generally.

YouTube: Basic SQL Queries (Simple SQL for Different Database Systems)


This is a beginner-level course on how to write SQL code to "talk" to a relational database system (e.g., MySQL, Oracle, Microsoft Access). I eventually get into showcasing a hands-on demonstration of creating SQL queries using Microsoft Access, which you can use this knowledge to also apply to more serious database systems like: MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM Db2, and so forth. However, before I get to that portion, I initially explain some general concepts and I give a slide-based overview of how to write various SQL syntax.

YouTube: Java Programming Basics (Overview, "Hello, World!", Variables, etc.)


Learn the basics concepts of programming in Java! I will be going over a lot of content in an easy to understand fashion. Though, please know that this video lecture follows my other lecture on YouTube called: Orientation to Java Programming (IDEs, JDK vs. JRE, "Hello, World!"). So, you may want to start with the previous video first to get yourself up and running before trying to dive into Java coding.
