leetspeek Manifesto

This is our manifesto; a public declaration of the intentions, motives and views of the leetspeek—Collective.

leetspeek is a learning-oriented collective that is open to everyone, our primary focus is to encourage learning, blogging in order to deepen knowledge on various computer science areas.

Call of duty

This is a call for Hackers, for those who love to break things to discover how they work internally, for those who believe that knowledge is the real power, for those who see the math behind the trees, for those who make stupid things learn and try to replicate the human thinking behavior, for those who are fed up to be tech consumer, for those who are trying to protect themselves and people around them for mass surveillance, for people who believe in a better economic system through distributed trust mechanisms, for those who are building and learning to build Systems and machines.

This is a call for hackers of the world to unite and to produce an intermediate to advanced tech resources in order to help newcomers advance and believe in the possibilities.

Let’s write articles and build a strong community around them.


We consider that the ethic and the code of conduct of all activities in a relationship with leetspeek should follow Levy’s hacker ethics stated in his book “Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution (ISBN 0-440-13405-6, 1984) :

  • Access to computers - and anything which might teach you something about the way the world really works - should be unlimited and total. Always yield to the Hands-On Imperative!
  • All information should be free.
  • Mistrust authority - promote decentralization.
  • Hackers should be judged by their acting, not bogus criteria such as degrees, age, race or position.
  • You can create art and beauty on a computer.
  • Computers can change your life for the better.
  • Don’t litter other people’s data.
  • Make public data available, protect private data.


  • Ops / Devops / Cloud
  • Dev / Software Design
  • Security / Pentest
  • AI / ML / Big Data
  • Virtual Reality
  • Computer Science

Any other topic suggestion should be communicated through a github Issue.


We chose English because it is the official language of 53 countries. This will enforce the worldwide nature of our initiative. We also accept a reasonable amount of hacker slang as defined in The Jargon File.
