Event description
On the webinar we will cover how 6502 processor works, it's instructions set and how to write a classic 'Hello, world' program for this CPU.

About this event

On the webinar Sergey Panarin, founder&CEO of SmartyKit, DIY kit to build Apple-1 just like LEGO, will talk about legendary 6502 CPU, how it works, what types of instructions it has and how to write a classical 'Hello, world' program in 6502 assembler language. Then you could do it yourself using your own assembler code, build it using provided Make file and ca65 assembler – and run it in 6502 emulator for Apple-1.

Our webinar helps a lot to get a higher-paying job as software engineer as you'd know basics of coding much better going right to bare metal:

  • variables and how are they stored in memory
  • memory pointers
  • how functions receive parameters and how do they return

We will discuss key types of 6502 CPU instruction set:

  • loading to register (LDA, LDX)
  • branching (BEQ) for creating loops
  • calling a function/subroutine (JSR)
  • arithmetical and logical (INX)
  • jump to the instruction at specific address (JMP)

Also we will discuss how computer stores data in memory and how to address this data.
