The C language is an imperative procedural language and a widely used programming language, commonly used to program operating systems such as Unix. It allows the programmer to write directly to memory meaning software programs can be used within the memory in an efficient and machine-independent fashion.
The Diploma in C Programming introduces you to the important concepts such as working with data, what program flow is, and using functions, methods and routines. The course teaches you about conditional flow statements, the mechanisms for controlling flow statements, and how to implement simple statements. Logical operators such as OR, GOTO and the While loop are also discussed in detail.
Next, the course introduces using pointers for direct memory access and manipulation in C, changing the memory address contained within a pointer and introduces constants and string literals. You will learn why pointers contain memory addresses of multi-byte variables, and how to visualize RAM in a new way. You will also get step by step instructions on how to create simple C programs and how to run them.
The course will be of great interest to IT, software and computer professionals who would like a greater knowledge and understanding of the C programming language and its key concepts and features.
