How cool, an updated assembler book 2016 - seems good, but is it only italian? If so, any chance of seeing an English version?

Thank you AMIGASYSTEM for linking the course here on EAB!
I'm one of the three authors of this new version. The book is based on the original Assembler Course from the nineties, so it's only in italian. We are considering also an english translation with the same format, but it will require some time. The printable version is about 400 pages long and the full version is about 1.5k pages (including source code examples)... quite a long translation task. :-)

If you want to "taste" some of the contents, you can download the printable pdf and try to use something like google translate, but l must warn you that usually gtranslate doesn't do a good job in translating from italian to english.

You can also try to download the adf images with the book examples, they are also quite informative and the accompanying text is easily translatable.

Cheers!

Thanks for spread the link

@alexsperi
Great job with the edition of this course-based book.
As the Portuguese has some similarities with Spanish and with the Italian I have tried to read the book and found that I can understand what is written in it with some effort

+1 for translation to english.

Google translated the preface, which actually was a really good read.

One would think that there aren't any English language assembly language guides at all judging by this thread.

Well have you even looked at the Italian book? It's massive and has so much sample code and examples and screenshots. This could possibly be the best Amiga assembly programming book in existence. It's no wonder we all want a translation

Back to work after a little break. In the next days I'll talk to the other authors in order to check if we can manage to make a good translation work.
Hope to write some news in few days. Meanwhile spread the word and write here if you are interested.

Wow, it's really nice to see this course published!

I wrote some parts of it, both text and code
It would be nice to see my nick acknowledged also in the 2016 foreword, even if I don't code anymore I still consider myself part of the scene

It's a pleasure to see you are still tied to the Amiga scene

Lesson 1, first page, and in some other places scattered through the book + also in the attached sources.
