Introducing Slammer: A New Way of Using Machine Language from Applesoft

Posted Sat, Aug. 25th 2012 in Echoes of KFest (video)

Wouldn’t it be great if you could put whatever machine language you wanted into a standard Applesoft program with practically no performance, dependency, or stability issues? With Ivan Drucker’s Slammer, you can! Slammer is a new method for installing and executing machine language routines, at machine language speed, using 100% legal Applesoft. This presentation introduces Slammer, explains how to use it, and describes the unusual and extreme machine language programming behind its development.

Magic with Macrosoft

Posted Sun, Aug. 12th 2012 in Echoes of KFest (video)

Once upon a time, only advanced programmers could achieve machine language speed. Learn how to use Macrosoft, a programming language from the same folks who brought us Nibble Magazine, to write Applesoft-like programs that achieve machine language speed, in this introduction to obtaining, using, and setting up Macrosoft and the companion Assembler. We’ll write a small Macrosoft program during the presentation to help you get started writing your own programs. See kansasfest.org/downloads/ for the associated Keynote slideshow, and read more notes from the presenter at http://bluerwhite.org/2010/08/macrosoft-kansasfest-2010/
