So uhhh... I may suddenly have a need for x64 assembly skills...
I've never done any assembly programming - what's the fastest learning path I can take?
@khalladay disassemble really small programs and step through. Then write some inline bits and grow from there.
depends on what you're trying to solve i guess - is it float performance (avx2 etc) - or smth else? Looking at what the compiler does can give good insights.
@bartwe if only I had the luxury of having ever done any assembly language programming before XD
Luckily the free "Reverse Engineering For Beginners" seems like a gentle enough introduction for me :)
@bartwe We've got some assembly code in house that might be of interest to my attempts at getting a memory tracking system online,
the problem is both that I don't read x64, and would eventually need to convert it to ARM64, (and then maintain it), so I'm mostly just looking to figure out how fast I can crash course into assembly and be useful with it.
@bartwe will do, thanks!
