Get started programming with C. Explore the fundamentals of this powerful language, including code structure, data, program flow, and functions.
- [Instructor] Over 50 years old, C remains one, if not the top computer programming languages. A required course at many universities, C is often called the Latin of computer languages, because when you know C, learning other programming languages is easy. Yet like learning Latin, C can be a beast. This is a concept-based approach, introducing the skills necessary to program in the C language. Each movie focuses on a specific part of the language, basic processes are repeated, as new concepts are introduced. It's like the way I learned C, exploring the language and discovering it at the same time. I'm Dan Gookin, author of the book, "Beginning C Programming for Dummies," and I invite you to join me and start your C essential training.
