C has been around for nearly half a century, but it’s still as essential as ever. This powerful language lies at the heart of many modern languages—including JavaScript and Objective-C—and is an up-and-coming language for embedded systems. Whether you’re taking your very first steps into programming with C, or you just want to brush up on the basics, this course can help to acquaint you with the fundamentals of this mid-level programming language. Instructor Dan Gookin dissects the anatomy of C, from data types and variables to simple functions. Plus, he shows how these basic elements fit together in control structures like loops—where the real logic behind your code comes into play.

Topics include:

  • Working the C development cycle
  • Writing a simple program
  • Adding comments to code for clarity
  • C language data types
  • Declaring variables
  • Specifying characters and strings
