General Development "In this tiny ebook I'm going to show you how to get started writing 6502 assembly language. [...] I think it's valuable to have an understanding of assembly language. Assembly language is the lowest level of abstraction in computers - the point at which the code is still readable. Assembly language translates directly to the bytes that are executed by your computer's processor. If you understand how it works, you've basically become a computer magician." More of this, please.

And Boolean algebra / logic gates too. Often forgotten by computer majors.

ASM was part of the first semester classes when I was in undergraduate technical college, along with binary. Then a few years later, in University, they don't even seem to know it still exist. They think it is something that is behind us and to look forward, they must teach more important things like design pattern and how to write layer upon layer of abstraction... What a shame.
