Released in 1973, C is still at the center of it all. In this course, get a quick introduction to the vocabulary and basics of programming in C, the language that inspired C++, Objective-C, and many others. Instructor Dan Gookin covers flow control, variables, and other basic topics, but also introduces advanced concepts such as pointers and memory allocation. Plus, he provides challenges that allow you to test your learning along the way.

Topics include:

  • Understanding a C program
  • Adding comments
  • Working with escape sequences
  • Working with values and placeholders
  • Variables
  • Making a decision with if
  • Looping
  • Adding functions
  • Manipulating strings
  • Allocating memory
