ESE101: Switching from Assembly to C

It’s been a while since the last ESE101 post. I’ve been busy with family, life, and work - all good stuff, but I hope to get back to more frequent writing here.

I started ESE101 using assembly language to teach the fundamentals. The microcontroller understands assembly instructions, and so I wanted to make sure you understood what the microcontroller was doing at the lowest level before moving on.

Now it’s time to move on - and move up - to C!

Over the next few posts I’ll give a brief introduction to C, and I’ll revisit some of the MSP430 examples we’ve done and show you how to program the MSP430 using C.
