Computer hacking is computer engineering at the most fundamental levels, for your own purposes rather than someone else's.
It's like being a car engine tuning fanatic or sculptor, knowing everything it's possible to know about the parts and materials you are working with so you can make them do whatever you want.

Learn everything you can about electronics and logic circuits; you cannot understand how to change or modify how things work or re-build them to do different things unless you understand them.

Learn the operation and machine code/assembly language for whatever CPU type you want to work with.

Start building your own gear – from component level, not plugging ready-built boards together.

eg. one of hundreds of small systems / computer based gadgets I've built:

Find stuff about Linux Kernel, I'm not really into hacking, but I once was and started learning Lin7x Kernel, it's so easy.
Admiral Smith:
Compile your linux kernel. That is a form of hacking. Also use the nmap tool on everyone in your network neighborhood. That is another form of hacking. Logging into unsecure network devices is also another form of hacking.
chrisjbsc:
What is it that you want to hack? Different hacks take different training. Hacking a baby alarm thru the network is different to hacking into someone elses bank account.
Naruto:
There are youtube videos, articles, and free udemy courses you can take to start off
Swimming in it:
It's about skills. Skills.
kenneth:
Please. There are hackers out there trying to harm you and they are called " black Hats" and "white hats" a for preventing "Black Hats" and "Grey Hats", which are usually people learning to hack or amateurs.

It's against law
