Teaching assembly

category: code [glöplog]
Ben Eater's videos are great and all but with a 6502, Z80 or even modern 8-bit processors I think that you might spend too much time trying to work around limitations of the processor rather than learning how to think assembly.

I think that's just a differing viewpoint on what "assembly" is; his videos are more on a ground-hardware level that allow you to understand how a processor operates, which I think can be useful - after all, learning a new CPU architecture once you already learned another is just googling the syntax and mnemonics for pretty much the same tools ("what's arithmetic shift left called on this cpu?!")
