DESCRIPTION
"Programming in C" is an intensive 2 days course, during which our tutor takes you from the fundamentals of the C language through techniques and principles such as pointers, structures, unions and dynamic memory allocation. With these skills learned, you'll be well equipped to read, write and maintain C code and to progress to learning C++ which adds to the principles and syntax of C.
PREREQUISITES
No prior programming experience is required for this course.

SUBJECT BACKGROUND
The C language is the bedrock of modern computing - it underlies your operating system, and it's the language in which other languages are written. However, only a small proportion of programmers actually need to develop and maintain code in C these days, as for the majority of applications the higher level languages that are themselves written in C are going to be more efficient.
