Looks like a brilliant syllabus: teaching universal 1st-principles,
and not just the current FB, twitter fads.

When RPi first came out, I wanted to build a P-code interpreter,
as I had done in the 70s for Fairchild-F8, 63xx/68xx, Intel16bit;

[as I had always done - I coded the F8 via a teletype in *HEX*]
since appaently the ARM assembler takes the user's <intentions>
and OPTIMISES it, in the background, to generate the actual.

No one on the RPi NNTP could understand my query, because today
it's always "doA, doB...", without understanding the underlying
principles. But now, I see the critical reference to "OPTIMIZED" in
