- [Voiceover] Hello, and welcome to Code Clinic for C. My name is Dan Gookin, and I'm excited to show you my solutions for the challenges proposed to the Code Clinic authors. This course presents a curious range of problems, and I'll show you interesting, creative, and sometimes, "off the wall" solutions for solving those problems, by using the C language. Along the way, you should broaden your understanding of C, and hopefully, grow to appreciate the non-standard, yet traditional way it's used to approach modern programming problems.
Maybe you'll learn some clever tricks and new problem-solving approaches along the way. The goal is to improve your programming skills, and oftentimes, stepping outside of your comfort zone is the best way to accomplish that task. If you search the Lynda.com library for "Code Clinic", you'll find additional courses by different authors, using a variety of languages to tackle these same problems. Check out those courses so you can compare different solutions, as well as the pros and cons of each language. If you're looking for tips on better coding, or trying to decide on your next new programming language, you're gonna love Code Clinic.
