https://gaultier.github.io/blog/x11_x64.html is a beginner's guide to writing a Linux X11 gui in assembly. From the author's intro:
I wanted to expand my knowledge of assembly and by doing something fun and motivating. It all originated from the observation that so many program binaries today are very big, often over 30 Mib (!), and I asked myself: How small a binary can be for a (very simplistic) GUI? Well, it turns out, very little. Spoiler alert: around 1 KiB!​
