The Master of skills and tools to be hacker

This is a basic skills to be a hacker from Jimmy .Learn how to be a hacker

1. Learn Hex2. Learn the assembly programming language.3. Learn TCP IP packets and learn to use sockets.4. Use the right tools.

Again, to be a hacker, you have to enter the hacker mindset. There are some things you can do when you're not at a computer that seem to help. They're not substitutes for hacking (nothing is) but many hackers do them, and feel that they connect in some basic way with the essence of hacking.
1.Read science fiction. Go to science fiction conventions (a good way to meet hackers and proto-hackers).
2.Study Zen, and/or take up martial arts. (The mental discipline seems similar in important ways.)
3.Develop an analytical ear for music. Learn to appreciate peculiar kinds of music. Learn to play some musical instrument well, or how to sing.
4.Develop your appreciation of puns and wordplay.
5.Learn to write your native language well. (A surprising number of hackers, including all the best ones I know of, are able writers.) The more of these things you already do, the more likely it is that you are natural hacker material. Why these things in particular is not completely clear, but they're connected with a mix of left- and right-brain skills that seems to be important (hackers need to be able to both reason logically and step outside the apparent logic of a problem at a moment's notice).
Finally, a few things not to do.
1.Don't use a silly, grandiose user ID or screen name.
2.Don't get in flame wars on Usenet (or anywhere else).
3.Don't call yourself a `cyberpunk', and don't waste your time on anybody who does.
4.Don't post or email writing that's full of spelling errors and bad grammar. The only reputation you'll make doing any of these things is as a twit. Hackers have long memories -- it could take you years to live it down enough to be accepted.
