C and C based languages module C101
Introduction to C
Exercises, examples and other material relating to training module C101. This topic is presented on public courses Learning to Program in C, Learning to program in C and C++, Programming in C, C and C++ Programming, Learning to program in C and C++, C and C++ Programming

Background
The C programming language is the bedrock on which most modern computing is built - it's used for much of the operating system and language programming, for example. C++ adds "Object Oreintation" onto C - if you don't know what "OO" is, that will be explained during your course. C++ is heavily used in large applications - for example, many large city institutions write their main systems in C++, and it's also the language in which many commercial applications are coded.
