1979–1985
This was my first exposure to assembly language; I used it on the RML 380Z at school. I remember reading through the entire Zilog guide to Z80 and getting to the end thinking: is that it? So how do you write code? And then having figuring that out. Happy days. Having to move to 6502 for the BBC Micro was painful after the (relative) richness of Z80.
1979–1980
1980–1983
1980–1990
Used to know the op codes by heart.
1981–
I used this at University for coursework. I hated Z80, compared to 6502 it's just clunky. It's a shame it's style carried on into the X86 family.
1981–
I've experimented with Z80 on various real CP/M systems in the past (including my BBC with Z80 second processor) and more recently on emulators.
1982–1992
1984–1985
1985
Dabbled on the Spectrum, lots of performance power but for lots of work. Found it more expressive than 6502
1985–1988
1985–1988
On a ZX Spectrum+ and an Amstrad PCW in Nigeria (Port Harcourt)
1990–1994
Printer driver on ZX Sinclair to print graphics by generating custom fonts.
1998–

Is this basically 8086 assembly? Yeah, managing those memory pages sucked. It's so awkward and arbitrary.
2008–
My Apple IIe had a Z80 card for running CP/M but I didn't explore Z80 Assembly until much later when I became interested in emulators
