Task: Watch Peter Dell’s Programming the Atari XL/XE YouTube Videos
Needed: Web Browser
Time: 2-3 hours
Programming is one of my favorite things to do with an Atari 8-bit computer. I have previously posted some of my own tutorials and some resources for learning to program. Fortunately, there are some great YouTube videos to watch as you are learning to code. Mr. Peter Dell, creator of the WUDSN IDE for the Atari, has a nice series of about 15 videos covering topics such as the memory map, character sets, and display lists. Each video is about 5-20 minutes long and includes clear examples in assembly language. Definitely worth a look as another source for learning how to code on the Atari.
Navigate to Peter Dell’s YouTube channel.
I very much enjoyed watching these videos as I get back into Atari programming a few years ago.
Here is an Atari Age thread with some discussion about the videos.
