Gameboy
MAKE pals and MAKE alum (Bre!) started a cool hacker collective called “NYC Resistor” – they’re not just sitting around drinking Club Mate (there isn’t any yet) — they have a ton of cool classes starting April 5th! In particular, this one looks awesome – writing Gameboy code!

Have you ever wanted to make a Gameboy game? Do you yearn for the days of yore when men were men and graphics code wrote directly to video memory? Have you ever wanted to tell a DMA controller who’s boss? Then c’mon down to my Gameboy programming classes! You’ll learn that, armed only with a laptop, an emulator, and some GNU tools you too can hack the Gameboy with the best of ‘em. Two sessions, two hours, too awesome! Get your tix and let’s get hacking!
