C is often considered to be the mother of all languages because so many other languages have been based on it.
Though C is simple it is one of the most powerful languages ever created. Considering it was created over 40 years ago, it is still used heavily and is usually in the top 5 or 10 most popular and most widely programming languages in the world.
Learning C can make you a better programmer in other languages like C++, Java, or C# by equipping you with a mental model of what the computer is actually doing when you run your programs.
By learning how things really work “under the hood”, and understand memory space, CPU architecture and so on, you can create more efficient programs, and obtain a huge advantage over other programmers in the process.
If you want to become a better developer, learning C is a great way to start!
By the end of this course, you will understand the fundamentals of the C Programming Language, and make yourself more marketable for entry level programming positions.
You will understand variables and the different data types, be able to utilize functions and arrays, understand the concept of pointers, learn about control flow (decision statements and iteration).
You will be in a position to apply for real-time programming positions, and truly understand the core language that most modern languages are based on!
If you have previously used the C programming language, then this course will deepen your understanding of it. If you have never used it, no problem, you will see that it can help you become a more efficient C developer.
The course will be constantly refined in the future based on student feedback!
This course does not skip on the details. You will learn how to write high quality code and become an excellent problem solver. This course does not just present how to code in the C programming language, but, also includes all the details on “why” you are doing the things you are doing. At the end of this course, you will fully understand the concepts of the C Programming language.
