I have a good sense of what's happening underneath and will think about it if it seems important.

I never coded in C but spent a lot of time in a proprietary, procedural language that might be described as a cross between Modula and a stripped down Ada. We sometimes implemented polymorphism, inheritance, and encapsulation manually, so how OO languages did it wasn't a surprise.

Having to parse and instantiate the code for templates significantly improved my understanding of what was going on there.

My most recent experience actually writing assembler was on the PDP-10 😲, but what happens in the depths hasn't changed much. Once in a while, I'd like to step into x64 assembler to see what the O/S is doing, but I can't follow it very well. Maybe someday it'll be important enough that I get my butt in gear and dig into it.
