SkullSpace hosted a series of workshops done by Ron Bowes in the fall of 2011! The first one - falling on Labour Day, September 5, 2011 - focused on the basics of software, programming, assembly language, and the principles and reasons behind reverse engineering.

Everybody was welcome to attend! And, if anybody took exceptionally good notes, they're welcome to update this page with notes from the sessions.

This workshop was free, and Ron was donating his time, but we appreciated the guests who brought a $10 or $20 donation for SkullSpace! In these early stages of running a hackerspace, every donation helped us greatly!

The particulars:

  • When: September 5, 2011, 6:00pm
  • What: Reverse Engineering workshop
  • Guests needed: a laptop (or a friend with a laptop) running a 32-bit version of Windows (either installed on the computer itself, or in a virtual machine)

Guests likely did not need the laptop for the first session, and at that session we talked about some options of how we could set up a lab or something that everybody could use.


For anybody who was unable to run 32-bit Windows, their best bet was to install VMWare Workstation. Later versions of Windows lets you run a few days without activation, so that might have been enough to solve the problem without any shenanigans.

Further classes

The second session probably happened in early October.
