comment Learnt cryptography and python. What do I do next?
I'm going to close this for now as I think, all-in-all, this is just not something we can really answer for you. However, don't let that stop you asking any questions you have on crypto :)

@Matteo well... the official answer is that we should use tag wikis like this one. As mods, we can create community wiki posts, and we've had a bit of a debate on that already. I like the idea conceptually, but I've seen it work out... badly. There's been requests to make tag wikis better too. Feel free to raise a meta post arguing your case...

I've closed this as being a list-of question, which we generally don't allow here. That said, I've mentioned this to other moderators in chat, as we persistently get these questions (our first was one) and we've debated allowing them before, so this could be re-opened (and you can still see the answers given anyway).
