Re: Assembly Language?

I write ARM code for RISC OS. More "because I can" than actual necessity. There's no such thing as platform independence in to IoT world. All the ARM SoCs are subtly different, and in the larger scale there are dozens of microcontrollers, each one different. You could have a common platform by running some sort of java, but that's a lot of power and processing going to waste - not luxuries one always gets.
