Den Bunker

Herrystraat 22, Deurne, Belgium

brain transplantation if IQ LTE 90


Agenda points

  1. Teaching basic ASM knowledge (understanding it is faaaaar more easier than writing it)
  2. Understanding the structure of an application in general
  3. Understanding it on the platform of choice (a practical example of the previous)
  4. Gluing the things together

Meeting notes

Join note taking during the meeting:


Learning some basic reverse engineering tasks. Concrete the following will be (attempted) to be teached:


I expect that all participants have the requested software and documentation ready on THEIR machine. The Internet connection of the space is too slow to use if somebody has forgotten to download some tools or documentation. I will be very strict: if will walk through the dependencies and people who do not meet them will not be allowed to attend. We will be short in time already, and we do need a break sometimes to let our brains cool down and process the incomming information.

If I alter this list within 24h before the start of the event, I will provide the changed files/data on USB Flash disk, SD card and optical medium (CD or DVD, whatever fits the data best). I will only provide copies of the changed data, not the full list, so you're still required to have everything mentionned before the deadline.

Hardware requirements

Any recent x86 compatible computer capable of running the mentionned software, storing the requested documentation, and at least 2000MB of storage to store work/data files generated during the event. Debugging info takes a lot of space on your hard drive - take that into account.

As a general rule, I propose the following (if you use a VM, this should be the VM settings, not the host computer specs):

Software requirements

Documentation required

(to be completed)

Participants skill required
