One of my early blog posts was one I entitled “Every software engineer should know roughly what assembly language their code generates“. It got a lot of commentary.
Well, I just ran into (via /.) the following article by Randall Hyde entitled: “Why learning assembly language is still a good idea“.
His article is much more in-depth and better written than my post, but essentially restates my premise. I'm always happy when other people post stuff that agrees with me :)
