DebuggingLearn how to debug at the assembly level and how to recover the assembly code from already-built binaries. Practice identifying common assembly fault conditions, then finish with a debugging project.
Course descriptionIn this course, we'll learn the ins and outs of debugging at the assembly level. In addition, we'll discuss how to recover the assembly code from an already-built application (regardless of what language it was originally built in). We'll continue by diving into the most common x86 faults you'll encounter while writing assembly and how to recognize and fix them. Finally, we round out with a debugging project.
