My first language was also assembly. When I built my Altair 8800 in 1976 (I still have it), there were no languages for it at all. We had to code on yellow legal pads then hand-assemble it from Intel 8080 manuals. You wouldn't believe how long it took to write and assemble even a small program. I had to save programs in ASCII on paper tape on a KSR-33 Teletype.

My first foray into programming was with my HP 11c calculator. Write it all on paper, carefully enter it into the calculator with no mistakes and see if it ran. Used to use the programs to design 2 stoke motorbike expansion chambers. By the time I got into PCs, I was no longer designing expansion chambers.

I must admit you started well before I did with assembly in the late 80's. When I got tired of manual coding on my TRS-80, I simply manual coded my own Z-80 assembler.

@ hewurfeljr
Welcome. You will definitely appreciate this forum and all that help which was not available in the """good""" old days!!!! Coding is an excellent activity to keep you busy in retirement; believe me, I've been retired for almost 35 years.
Whenever you assume something, you risk being wrong half the time.

I saw computer hobbyist documentary in several parts on tv,in first part ,cool that they discovered by accident altair could affect a radio,so one programmer found out how to run certain seqences of code made it possible to output a melody on the radio,without a soundcard,did you try that?
I started asm in 80's and lack of speed I turned to asm,it was assembler game programmers that where the stars those days,not youtubers
