Any beginner friendly course on Web Penetration testing?

Hello friends,

I'm working as frontend developer from last 2.5years, interested to get into ethical hacking but I have no idea where to get started with little research came to know about Penetration testing, which I thought would be best for me as I also have knowledge of frontend stuffs.

Currently I'm doing ZTM Web security & bug bounty course from Udemy but it's just 10hr & they had touched just basics of tools etc. It's good course but I'm in search of more in-depth knowledge of this field.

From carrer perspective I want to work as FrontEnd Developer only but I want to lean about Penetration testing to participate in bug bounty programs.

Any beginner courses or a roadmap some one can recommend to become a successful pen tester? Assuming I have no knowledge related of this field.

Hacker roadmap

This repository is an overview of what you need to learn penetration testing and a collection of hacking tools, resources and references to practice ethical hacking. Most of the tools are UNIX compatible, free and open source.

Before you start

  • If you're new to information security, forget everything you know about hacking.
  • Don't start using tools without reading about pen testing and how it works (see Additional resources section).
  • Don't download or use tools if you haven't audited its code.
  • Don't use these tools to do stupid things like investigating/hacking without consent on your friends, or worst, your recruiter.
  • Read books, manuals, articles, be curious and not just a script kiddie.
  • I wish you don't use these tools for illegal purposes, but if you do, I sure hope you know what you're doing.
  • Practice using challenges, not real targets!
