Read Assembly LanguageThe x86 Adventures series teaches you your computer’s language – x86 Assembly language, from scratch. No previous knowledge is expected.
This is the full accumulation of x86 Assembly Adventures. It covers everything from the real basics to being an autonomous (and tough) x86 Assembly programmer.
Main topics included:
- The Binary System
- The x86 Architecture
- Intro to Flat Assembler
- Signed and Bitwise Operations
- Subroutines and the Stack
- Reading the Manuals
- Dealing with Windows API
Why learn x86 Assembly Language?
- You are the variety of person who really likes to know how something work. In this course you are going to get solid knowledge on how computer programs work from the inside.
- Become a more skilled programmer – Knowing how things work down there will help you take better choices, even as a high level programmer. If you were always querying what is the stack, or what are those pointers everyone speaks about, you came to the right place.
- Compose faster code – When you really want to get the most of your processor, recording in raw Assembly is needed. We are not going to talk about optimizations in this course, however you will get a solid foundations so that you can proceed searching on your own.
- You want to convert a reverse engineer or a security researcher, read the code of viruses or look for software vulnerabilities. As most of the time the original source code will not be available to you, solid understanding of x86 Assembly Language is mandatory.
The course is made of video lectures. A lecture could be from a show, or a real world example, showing me doing stuff at the computer.
Almost every video lecture is conducted by some kind of exercise (You will be told during the lecture, don’t worry ) The exercises are open source. They are added here as a rar file, however you could also get them on github. (See “About this course” video for more knowledge)
- You are using a Windows operation system. (The course videos use Windows 7). It is advised to use at least Windows XP. (This means it will work perfectly on Windows 7 and Windows 10).
- You have an intel x86 processor. (If you don’t know what you have then you have x86 processor, trust me). We study 32 bit x86, but this course will also work on 64 bit processors.
For the tech savvy, some more aspects about the tools we are going to use in this course:
- Assembly flavour: x86 32 bits protected mode.
- Assembler: The Flat Assembler (FASM)
- Debugger: WinDbg.
Using Linux? Most of the exercises were ported to Linux, however the videos show me using windows 7. Communicate me if you are not sure.Who is the target audience?
- Total beginners
- Skilled programmers
- People who really want to know how things work
- Programmers who want to develop their skills
- Programmers who want to write more active code
- Anyone who wants to become into the reverse engineering or security manufacturers
