I learned how to use the Doors SDK for assembly development as opposed to
typing in the opcodes by hand, and I was wondering if any assembly programmers
had any tips and tricks about the hardware and such.

In addition:
How can I become a better assembly programmer?
What are some projects I should work on?
Is there any pitfalls to look out for?

Practice!

Projects that interest you

Starting too large / complex projects and never finishing them
This is a signature.
And now......give me an internet!

To be or not to be.........is that even a question? Who gets to decide this anyways?

For projects, I meant more along the lines of what are some things
that would be interesting to program.

To say simply I'd like some suggestions for something interesting and not too
challenging, so I can get some practice.

I would suggest programming on a PC, i cant imagine having hundreds of lines of asm on a calc screen.

As for projects, if you are new to asm, i would suggest starting off with something simple like pong or snake just to get a hang of asm ;)

I am currently using a pc, but I used to do it by hand.
The jumps were the worst part!

I built a terribly inefficient sprite drawing routine today,
so I'll try to make a simple game like you suggest :)
