On January 17, 2023 a user of the Rocket.Chat server operated by the Islamic State (ISIS) published a post listing 20 programming languages he recommended for jihadis learning to code. He recommended picking one to master first, adding a list of three platforms offering real-world programming challenges. The post included a graphic with the user's handle.
The post followed the user's previous posts in which he identified as a developer and argued for the importance of programming knowledge in advancing ISIS's goals (see MEMRI Cyber Terrorism & Jihad Lab Report ISIS Supporters Should Learn Programming To Combat Infidels' Military Technology, Claims Pro-ISIS Developer, Offering To Help Those Who Wish To Learn). As in his previous posts, the user offered to assist other ISIS supporters who are learning to code.
