    A middle-aged man hacks Super Mario Bros. You won't believe what happens next.

    I talked with Derek a million years ago about programming the NES and he said that that could be a fun talk. I still would like to try that someday, but in the interim I propose something a little more fun–hacking SMB1 for the NES!

    I will cover three different types of hacks:

    • Game Genie tomfoolery (dynamic ROM editing).
    • Text replacement and translation shenanigans (altering ROM).
    • World Randomizer (altering ROM).

    However, it’s not all fun and games; expect to learn about the following topics:

    • NES memory model.
    • NES pattern tables.
    • Some 6502 assembly programming.

    Brief History of JavaScript Module

    Are you new to JavaScript and confused about modules, module loaders and module bundlers? Or you have been writing JavaScript code for a while, but can’t get a grip of the jargons about module? You heard about the jargons like CommonJS, AMD, Browserify, SystemJS, Webpack, JSPM, etc., but don’t understand why we need them?

    I will try to explain what are they, and what problem they try to solve, and how they solve the problem.
