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.

ARM is in fact a kind of conceptual evolution of 6502. The creators of the architecture were heavily influenced by 6502 used in the BBC micro and designed ARM to be a logical successor.
