C Programming for beginners

C Programming for beginners. C is a high level and general purpose programming language that is fast, portable and available in all platforms. It is a procedural programming language which was initially developed by Dennis Ritchie between 1969 and 1973.

The main features of C language include low-level access to memory, simple set of keywords, and clean style. Those features make C-programming most useful to build operating system. C is essentially the OS focused, as well as the language that powers just about everything else (from the Linux kernel to most Java VMs, to the Python and Ruby interpreters, SQL databases, web servers, and just about every device driver), an intimate understanding of the language goes a long way.

If you are newbie in programming, then you can start with C-programming because many of the later programming language have inherited it’s syntax/features directly or indirectly. If you learn the basics of C-programming then you can easily learn other programming language like Java, Php, Javascript, C++. That’s why in most of the computer science programs, C-programming is the very first programming language that will be taught.

Why should I learn C-programming?

You should learn C-programming because:

  • knowing C is that you have a very good idea of how a computer works and how the program executes. Not just how your programming model works, but how memory’s laid out, and suchlike.
  • C focused on the semantics of the language longer, and it often forces you to think harder and deeper about what’s happening under the hood.
  • C is simpler and you can easily gets through its syntax and you will write better codes.
  • You’ll find other programs easy to be learned.
  • Learning C is not just to create some apps or web pages, but you can contribute to some big open-source projects that will have impact on whole world.
  • Learning C will have fewer distraction because it doesn’t have features like inheritance or polymorphism like in case of OOPs.
  • knowing C also lets you appreciate how much less work you have to do in a higher level language

Why shouldn’t I learn C-programming?

  • If you want to start programming with really easier language, then python can be your first choice.
  • If you are interested in developing some apps, games or websites, then you don’t need to spend much time on C.

How and where do I start learning C programming?

You can find lots of stuffs on internet to learn C. But if you want to learn C without any troublesome and you want to make base for other programming language, then C Programming for beginners can be a good choice. Here in the upcoming tutorials you can learn C with basic programming examples. In the upcoming tutorial, I’ll be talking about some general things in C like syntax, input, output, control statements, user-defined function, arrays and strings. Those things will be enough to learn basic of C and then you can practice some really good examples. After that, I think you’ll have pretty good base to jump into other programming language like C++, Java.
