Yesterday I did a talk for the /dev/summer /dev/summer event called "Security Is Hard - I Need A Cheatsheet". I had a huge amount to cram in 45 minutes. So much was left on the editing room floor as well.

I've uploaded the talk to My Github repository - securitytalk2014 with both keynote bundle format and a full PDF export of presenter notes as well as slides.

If anyone wants to chat to me about the talk you can get me on Twitter as @garrybodsworth (or the email address in the presentation).

Tue 18 June 2013 by Garry Bodsworth

For a new job, a spring clean. The blog has been renamed Fragmented Memory with its own domain.

Thu 13 June 2013 by Garry Bodsworth

This is a weird thing I never thought I would write in my career, but I'm joining Microsoft.  There is a new games studio called Lift London and I knew someone working there.  So my CV (well, Stack Overflow Careers profile) winged its way to their desks, and before ...

Thu 13 June 2013 by Garry Bodsworth

Yesterday was my last day at Bromium.

More Creator-Owned Comics - Genocide: Duostar

Tue 05 March 2013 by Garry Bodsworth

Before I gave up drawing around 17/18 (nearly 18 years ago) I was working on a strip that I was hoping to be published in a new Lee Davies (he of the old UK fanzine Mondo) publication.  So I came up with a whole series bible and a set ...

Bromium - Out Of Stealth

Thu 21 June 2012 by Garry Bodsworth

Yesterday Bromium (the company, not what the product will be) came out of stealth mode.  This was a very exciting time around the office because we can give a bit more context on what we've been secretly working away on.

During the proceeding months before this release of information ...

The real important feature of C++

Mon 09 April 2012 by Garry Bodsworth

I've been having to write a lot of C code recently, and it makes me pine for some features of C++ because of the verbosity of some portions of code. It made me consider what really changes the way you code in C++ on comparison to C.


There are ...

Allwinner A10 - open-source ARM

Tue 03 April 2012 by Garry Bodsworth

Developing on ARM is a minefield.  Each platform is different (even if they look the same) and you are lucky if any of the software is not covered by NDA or some prohibitive SDK cost for experimentation.

People have obviously heard of the Raspberry Pi but mid-to-lat 2011 there was ...

Camvine - The Highs And Lows

Wed 28 March 2012 by Garry Bodsworth

These are some other random highs and lows from the Camvine experience, lifting the veil on some bits and pieces.

What would I have rather have done with those three-and-a-half years?  Nothing else.  It'll be in my blood for a while longer.


We did the Cambridge Tech Demo ...

Camvine - An Obituary - From Start-Up To Stop In Four Years

Tue 27 March 2012 by Garry Bodsworth

Maybe I could also call this "what was i doing for the last three-and-a-half years?"  Today could really be described as the final day of Camvine's existence, even though I left at the end of December (something I would rather not have done, I'll explain later) this is ...

Boogie Board Rip - Review

Wed 16 November 2011 by Garry Bodsworth

Perhaps I should have titled it "The Tale Of Two Tablets".  A few months ago I picked up myself and Asus Eee Note, the main selling point to me was the integrated Wacom digitiser making me believe this could be a useful sketching device.  Unfortunately the software on it was ...
