Bug bounty hunting is (probably) the most hype topic in the hacking subworld, some people read amazing stories of how a 18 years old won 1 million dollars only doing legal hacking. Many hit a wall when they realize that after two months they only won points, thanks or cheap swag. Where's the money?, they ask. What should I learn and how? How many books should I read? How many minutes of Youtube tutorials? What if I lose some weight? [always recommended] How can I be the next bug bounty millionare?
In this workshop I will show you a path to be a bug bounty hunter, from my experience starting by chance and from scratch. I will teach you how to use the tools I use everyday to find bugs, but most importantly how to see bug bounty hunting as a complex business process .

Where to train
Philippe Delteil is Computer Science Engineer from the University of Chile, he gave his first talk at Defcon 26 Skytalks, called "Macabre stories of a hacker in the public health sector", his country's government sent 3 officials to record the talk, they did. He's been reporting bugs for a year. He's an annoying github issue opener of some opensource tools like axiom, nuclei, dalfox and bbrf; also makes small contributions to 'Can I take Over XYZ?'
