CS50 Forensics Post Series

Posts in the Series

  1. Using Go to Recover JPEGs from a Forensic Image
  2. Using Ruby to Recover JPEGs from a Forensic Image

Purpose of this Post Series

These blog posts document my exploration of languages mostly unfamiliar to me (unless noted) while trying to solve the Forensic problem of recovering deleted images from a forensic image of an SD card. This is both to learn a little about the language used and experience solving a problem beyond hello world with it.

What is CS50?

CS50 is an introductory course offered by Harvard to students at the college and online via EdX and the Harvard Extension School. It teaches mostly through a series of problems sets which mostly focus on using C to solve them. One of the more interesting problem sets is Problem Set 4: Forensics.
