HackerOne's bug hunters have earned $20-Million in bug bounties by 2017, and are expected to earn $100-Million by the end of 2020. Some of HackerOne's customers include the United States Department of Defense, General Motors, Uber, Twitter, and Yahoo. This clearly shows where the challenges and opportunities are for bug hunters in the upcoming years. This course will provide you with a solid technical training by one of the Top 10 HackerOne bug hunters.
