The C programming language is a popular and widely used programming language for creating computer programs. Programmers around the world embrace C because it gives maximum control and efficiency to the programmer.
If you are a programmer, or if you are interested in becoming a programmer, there are a couple of benefits you gain from learning C:
- You will be able to read and write code for a large number of platforms — everything from microcontrollers to the most advanced scientific systems can be written in C, and many modern operating systems are written in C.
- The jump to the object oriented C++ language becomes much easier. C++ is an extension of C, and it is nearly impossible to learn C++ without learning C first.
In this article, we will walk through the entire language and show you how to become a C programmer, starting at the beginning. You will be amazed at all of the different things you can create once you know C!
