At 33c3, Michael Steil gave "The Ultimate Game Boy Talk", which explains in detail all the hardware in the Game Boy. I would like to take a more hands-on approach, and show you how to write your own games.

We will start by grepping through the code for Pokemon Red, to get a feel for how things work. Once comfortable, we'll make small changes to the code. And finally write a program from scratch.

To get the most out of this workshop, it is recommended to watch the above talk, and to already install the BGB emulator and RGBDS compiler.
