Join Dan Gookin for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Learning C (2014).
- I'm making no assumptions. This course is designed from the ground up to be taken by anyone who has an interest in programming. Maybe you're looking to get a job, supplement another course, or just enrich yourself by finally getting control over your computer. Whatever your background, this course is for you. If you have some programming background, great! If you've dabbled in C before, better! Otherwise, I believe you'll find yourself comfortable with this course which makes no additional assumptions beyond a desire to learn. You'll need a computer running Windows, Max OS X, or Linux to install the programming software or IDE.
A later movie shows you how to get that free software. Once it's configured, I recommend that you use it at the same time as you watch this course. I may occasionally ask you to pause the movie to work a puzzle yourself, and it helps if you do things as directed because learning programming should be interactive. The immediate feedback helps you to understand how things work. So if you're ready to learn, I'm ready to teach!
