Assembly 6502 to be specific because it one of those made for humans and low-level enough.
You can learn for fun or just to know better,as it easy to learn with a little knowledge of hexadecimals.

I am interested to learn it

I don't think you know what your saying if you say assembly language is simply.


Remember you are talking about row code

I know,but the concept is not hard all.

what do you know about hexadecimals?
It no problem if you don't. smiley

Learn assembly for the sake of passion, money, necessity. if you're doing it for fun, just know you will quit soon.

if you're doing it for fun only , just know you will quit soon.

Since it for fun and not for production,it ok.

Why learn assembly language when u can learn C or C++ that will make code development easy for you. Why use a 6502 microcontroller that is not common in this part of the world when u can use Atmega or Arduino, PIC, ARM and the likes That has much online support.

I stand to be corrected, Telling people that assembly language is easy to learn is not the whole truth. U need much knowledge of hexadecimal, and binary to be able to work with assembly language. Its C or C++ that needs little Knowledge of hex.

By God's grace I started my Embedeed systems career about 10 years ago, i learnt with assembly language for about 2 years, but when i switched to C, my life never remained the same till now. I now write codes of about 5,000 lines.... Now imagine if i am to write that in assembly language.

If you feel assembly language is better than high-level language like C, post your points here and let's argue it out.

You sound very knowledgeable and informed. Do you have any public portfolio ? just asking tho.

I can't say it better but it actually depends on what you want to achieve.
Having a good knowledge of assembly makes you a better C programmer.

I am an electronics engineer, embedded systems hobbyist and a part time electronics project designer.

You can mail me on savotechng@gmail.com if u need my assistance.

I will agree with you If it were to be 10 years ago...

The advantages of assembly language u could talk about is having higher speed and saves ROM space.
And probably being able to explore all functions of the microcontroller that the C compliler have no support for.

Today, most microcontroller and C compiler have a good code optimisation and almost all functions are supported in updated version C compilers for PIC or Arduino. so even though using assembly have it own advantage, its disadvantages completely swallows up the advantage. Reason is:
1. If u need more speed, use microcontroller that supports higher speed and use your C language.
2. If u need more space, use microcontroller that has higher ROM and use your C language.

Technology is moving at fast rate and open source companies like Arduino and the rest have a C library for almost all modules and peripherals. Most companies that produce embedded systems modules and peripherals have a sample codes written in C.

Learning in assembly almost have no good compared to C or other high level language except the microcontroller you are using has no C compiler.

I salute your effort in wanting to enlighten people... I am just feeling like saying my mind too concerning it.
