Hello World!

Welcome to my new blog! This is where I’ll blog about neat stuff I discover as I explore computer systems, though there might be a fair bit of overlap with other related areas that also interest me.

So I just managed to bag a free domain from namecheap, and it is : objdump.me

Why objdump ?

First of all let’s get clear on the name. I learnt about objdump regretfully quite late ( when I was interning at Amazon) and it than came back again while taking grad OS at UT Austin. This is a very neat shell command, that will show you the contents of your assembled code ( e.g. a.out ) in all the gory details, you can actually view the segments and all. Its pretty exciting. Jessica McKellar has a couple of very very useful blogposts that explain this in a fun exercise. Highly recommended :
