Recapping the ROM Hacking Workshop

The hands-on workshop hosted by Patrick LeMieux introduced participants to how ROM cartridges work and how to create games by hacking and modding existing code from ROMs.

There was so much interest in the ROM Hacking workshop that we scheduled a second workshop to accommodate more participants. The hands-on workshop introduced participants to how ROM cartridges work and how to create games by hacking and modding existing code from ROMs.

The code for the hacked Super Mario Bros. ROMs generated by the workshops are available here.
