Response to: Modern Programmers Should Write Code in Assembly

"Don't just make your application "work and work now", make it work "better, faster, cheaper"."


I think most programmers have trouble 'just' making their applications work and the conventional wisdom seems to be that "Premature optimization is the root of all evil in programming", as originally stated by C.A.R Hoare long before we had the plentiful supplies of memory, processsor cycles and network bandwidth we enjoy today.


Where did this movement for assembler fundamentalism spring from?
