EPISODE 237 REVERSE ENGINEERING

Today’s episode is on reverse engineering. What is reverse engineering you ask? Reverse engineering is the art of seeing something and deciding “Hey i can build that!” and being able to figure out how it’s made and replicating it for yourself. one of the benefits of reverse engineering something is being able to see any weak points and fixing them before they are a problem. Also you can take an idea and build it to your specifications and build it with better materials for yourself there by improving the usability and life expectancy of what you are building. So if you want to hear some of my thoughts on reverse engineering listen in to today’s episode .
