A Pattern Language for Training Course Development and Maintenance

After developing and publishing almost ten training courses with some of them in the second and the third edition, we decided to summarize our solutions to recurrent training course engineering problems. So we started developing a catalogue of patterns. Here we follow common engineering pattern stack: Requirements, Architecture, Design, Implementation, Presentation, and Deployment (Delivery) patterns.

Here we introduce the first architectural pattern we call after the proverb: First Things First. It describes the need to introduce or remind the basic vocabulary to use for the rest of the training course. This vocabulary is not what the training aims to teach. Its knowledge is a prerequisite, but we need to provide our version of the definition of that terminology in order to have a common ground and remove any misunderstanding that may arise later on.

For example, Accelerated Windows Memory Dump Analysis training course starts
with the following definitions:

  • Application
  • Process
  • Module
  • Driver
  • User space
  • Kernel space
  • Process virtual space
  • Process memory dump
  • Kernel memory dump
  • Complete memory dump
  • Thread
  • Thread raw data
  • Thread stack trace
  • Access violation exception
  • Runtime exception

It is essential terminology we need to agree about before we proceed with teaching memory dump analysis.

We plan a presentation and a book in earlier 2015 to show more patterns from different pattern stack frames.

Pattern-Oriented Network Forensics: A Patten Language Approach

In February, 2015 we plan a lecture from Software Diagnostics Institute which introduces a pattern language for network forensics - investigation of captured network traces for patterns of abnormal network traffic behavior. It provides a unified language for discussing and communicating detection and analysis results, a base language for checklists, and an aid in accelerated learning. Pattern-oriented network forensics is based on a synthesis of pattern-oriented network trace analysis with malware narrative approach including malnarratives and complements pattern-oriented memory forensics.
