Any of you from the 80’s will remember the BBC Micro. Well I got one about half a year ago and have been fascinated by it ever since. The 8-bit 2MHz limitations are part of the joy of it.
Ever since I learnt it had an assembler I’ve been learing assembly and one day I just thought “Let’s write a C compiler for this” (bad idea), but I went with it and that’s what this talk is about my journey and findings along the way of writing a C compiler in python.
github is here (mandatory reading for talk! not really)
As usual, we’ll be having Lightning talks at this session - if anyone would like to give a short (~5 minutes) talk on any topic, just let us know!
This month’s venue is T/0.31 in the School of Computer Science & Informatics. Enter the complex through the main gates and follow the awesome signs!
