alpha713 writes "zzine.org has a good article on some of the sites that you can use to challenge your programming + security abilities and learn new skills.

From the article:
We all love a good challenge, and the chance to prove to our friends that we actually have some ability. So if you're procrastinating(like me) try out the sites below. Be aware all of the sites below require that you sign up for an account, mostly due to needing to track your progress through the challenges."
