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.

Never say never indeed. My daily job IS writing assembly
code. Maybe one of a few left in the world but as old
fashioned or pathetic as it sounds, there still is a need
for assembly language.

And as someone have already mentioned, it is good to know
it in order to have a better understanding for how stuff
works. ;)
