Course description

Programs are rarely entirely sequential: at some point, conditional sections of code need to be executed. In this course, we’ll learn how to take concepts from higher-level languages (such as if/else/for/while) and translate them into x86 so we can write assembly that has conditional code branches and code paths. Then we finish up with a project lab tying together all of the x86 concepts you’ve learned so far.
