Flying with SoftWare Favorites Gallery List


similar to the other "Flying with ..."-threads, which were already initiated by Dennis (Neiwiertz), I want to start a similar thread about software. As I have programmed up to now only 8-bit-PIC's, and this only in assembler, I am only able to add links to useful assembler posts. It would be pretty nice, if other members could help to improve this "library of useful links". Feel free to send me a pm, if you think, that a link to a post should be posted here or add it yourself here. Thanks!

Have fun!Smile

    I applaud your initiative and believe that you will be a good keeper for its care-taking.


    If it is worth writing it is worth writing in assembler.

    When you have calculated the worst case time needed for a project, triple the numerical value and raise to the next time unit.
    -I.E. a project estimated to 6 days will take 18 weeks.
