Who are you?
I'm Wunkolo! I've had an interests in reverse engineering and comp sci for a pretty long time. Since I was around the age of 11 my interest in computers started from taking the time to understand game-cheat devices such as Action Reply and GameShark for Pokemon on the GBA and NDS and eventually Halo and Metal gear solid and beyond to many other games both PC and Consoles. A lot of my experiences come from researching and reverse engineering games for mods for fun and circumventing protective measures and "educational purposes" and such.
IDA Pro is tanned onto my face from being on screen so much.
Can you program? If yes, what languages?
I've touched a lot of languages but my favoritism is with C++ for sure. I can program in C/C++, ARM and x86 assembly, Python, C#, "The Javas", and scattered snippets in PHP and Ruby and a few others.
How'd you find us?
Seeing so many posts on /r/ReverseEngineering has brought me to this place often enough that I might as well get involved with the source of some of the great write-ups and articles that I've seen from this place.
It seems like a very healthy community that I'd want to be a part of and eventually contribute to.
How long have you been interested in computers/infosec?
Started at the age of 11 up to now, making that almost 11 years of a lot of self teaching. Growing up I've been seeing videos of "the big boys" hacking their way into the original xbox and 3ds and recently the PS4 and taking on some very inspiring projects that pushed me to keep going. Nothing gave me a better understanding of data structures and algorithms than popping the hood of an actual program putting these strategies put to practice and seeing things tick for myself.
Modding and hacking games on their respective consoles has driven a lot of my self-teaching on reverse engineering and introduced me to familiar and new faces to exchange knowledge with with each iteration. It lend itself to be an educational atmosphere during these periodic "reunions" to hack into games that we all like and grew up with and lead to creating projects such as ElDorito and Osiris which would serve as a repo of our findings for others to see(enough to make Microsoft very angry at certain points).
Reverse engineering certain games had driven me to learn a lot about the computer sciences for the longest time but it is a pretty dry topic when there isn't a new iteration to mod so that experience is applied elsewhere at times or on other software and territories and even malware analysis.
