Original question from Quora:
Should I learn assembly?
Yes. Even in 2017 Assembly is still worth learning.
This year I started learning some x86 assembly and I found it to be a fantastic learning experience.
Specifically, I am taking the time to build my own operating system from scratch in 16 bit x86 assembly. Even simple things like printing out to the screen or accepting user input are a bit of challenge.
It’s worth noting that in terms of supposedly “useful” things like writing production software, it’s extremely rare to find anything written in assembly in 2017, but I find learning to be useful so assembly is useful to me.
