Course Description

If you are a student wanting to understand the power of C, or an adult learner simply wondering what the C Programming language is all about, this free introductory course is for you.


The C programming language is one of the most popular and widely used programming languages. It is a general-purpose programming language and there are very few computer systems in existence that are not set up for its use (i.e. where a C compiler does not exist).
