I've been using MSX computers since 1984. In the early 90s the 16-bit platforms took over and most users moved to bigger, more powerful computers. Among the users who stayed some just wanted to play existing games, while others had access to technical knowledge and were able to develop new games and applications. There were others who would have liked to code, but didn't have access to or couldn't understand technical documentation without help.

Fast forward to 2015. The people who love MSX computers are still here, and others who didn't own an MSX before have joined because retro machines are popular. Access to technical information is now easier than it used to be, but one hurdle remains: the best technical documentation for MSX computers was written in Japanese by ASCII Corporation.

I'm one of the crazy ones who learnt Japanese to be able to read these documents.

I've been living in Tokyo for almost 14 years, and during my free time I write articles to teach you how to program for MSX computers, regardless of whether you have previous experience or not.

I'll post at most four paid articles per month. Additional articles are always free.
