A Systemic Approach to Game Design: Part Two

Being that I'm starting Joy Machine from, essentially, nothing (other than experience and a couple of the most talented people I've ever known), approaching Steel Hunters from a systemic design perspective first and foremost and primarily and critically and what I'm saying here is that it was the only real option in my mind. System design is just about the most difficult up-front task in the grand life sphere of Game Design. I don't think it's too much of a stretch to consider it a step removed from software engineering. After all, the first step for a software engineer is designing a product/system and then designing the implementation. So, yeah, not too far off-base. I'm going to get hate-mail from software engineers for this analogy, I know it already.

Thoughts on Security Engineering - How to Secure Systems in Real World

Article | July 14, 2022

Software Engineering is about building systems that behave the way it is meant to. Security Engineering on the other hand, is about ensuring a given system DO NOT behave in a way it is not meant to. Consider the example of a Adobe Reader - A software which is meant to process and visualize the contents of a PDF Document.

Where we are now: reflecting on 5 years of State of the Nation

Article | July 20, 2022

The UK has undergone five years of unprecedented change while facing up to long-term challenges, such as reducing regional inequalities and mitigating the impact of climate change. Over that period, ICE’s annual State of the Nation reports have set out a range of policy interventions aimed at ensuring the UK has the high-performing infrastructure needed to meet those challenges. Each report has focused on major cross-cutting infrastructure issues, including devolution and reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions.

3 IMPORTANT STEPS TO REVERSE ENGINEERING A PART

Article | April 8, 2021

Over the past 120 years, there has been a production of millions of machine parts and products worldwide. However, few of these products are still relevant over the years because of the technological advancement, but lots of old parts used in machines are still in use. When a part breaks down or malfunctions, it is usually replaced using a process known as reverse engineering. There are many things that can be learned from a machine or software, just from reverse engineering. This is because the concept behind the reverse engineering process is to break something down to help understand it, and the engineer can then build a copy or try to improve it. Furthermore, there is a need for a reverse engineering design process as the technology advances to ensure the existing manufacturing systems’ continuity. Reverse engineering is an important process for everybody as we will be forced to replace entire machines without it. In this article, we will break down everything you need to know about reverse engineering, from reverse engineering to reverse engineering processes.
