Historical perspective

Assembly languages date to the introduction of the stored-program computer. The EDSAC computer(1949) had an assembler called initial orders featuring one-letter mnemonics.[13] Nathaniel Rochester wrote an assembler for an IBM 701(1954). SOAP (Symbolic Optimal Assembly Program)(1955) was an assembly language for the IBM 650 computer written by Stan Poley.[14]


seems assembly is like dna, it appeared spontaneouslly everywhere there were a machine ready to exploit with code.
and Nathaniel Rochester as one of the first human confronted to the need of code with mnemonics.
