1982–2000
Not really sure about the start. Mostly used on the 68010, which was the version of the 68K that could actually do VM. Also wrote a assembly->assembly "de-pessimizer" for the output of the GreenHills compiler.
1984–1991
Mac 68000 Assembly language
1985–1989
Used on Atari ST and Eicon Technologies EiconJet printer emulation board.
1986
Wrote some assembly for a special 68000 coprocessor card for an Apple 2.
1986–1993
Getting to the metal on the old Amiga. Programming the blitter from the copper. Yeah. Those were the days.
1986
Used 68K assembler on a defence project I can't talk about.
1988–1990
1990
"Tom's program is very slow, but I can't figure out why, so I am giving him full credit for the assignment." I was storing two integers in each register via bit shifts to avoid the trouble of screwing around with memory.
1992–1995
1992–1994
I bought a book on 68K assembly on a day trip to (I think) Great Falls, Montana while visiting a friend in Lethbridge, Alberta, and read it for pleasure. I think that was around 1983. Its orthogonality reminded me of PDP-11 assembly. But I didn't get a chance to use it until programming for System 7 on Macs for Motion Works, starting in 1992, where a reading knowledge of 68K assembly came in handy.
1993–1994
1995–2003
Developing memory patches for the Siemens EWSD Digital switching system involved using this.
1995
1996–1998
Amiga demo coding for fun.
2001
Just a course on assembler languages.
2006–2007
2011–
The language that helped me really learn what's going on. I firmly believe every programmer should work with low-level languages at least once in their lives.
