Buffalo Programming Language

The Buffalo Programming Language came out of a conversation I had with a friend of mine who was studying English literature. It's an esoteric attempt to create a language that has only a single token for syntax. I published a gitbook with documentation and examples.

2014

Assembly Language Tutor

This project was started as an effort to teach myself 64bit assembly language on linux systems. I've always been interested in the history of computing and noticed that tutorials for linux systems were few and outdated. I published my tutorials online and plan to add more to the collection with time.
