C Programming

C is a general-purpose, high-level language that was originally developed by Dennis M. Ritchie to develop the UNIX operating system at Bell Labs. C was originally first implemented on the DEC PDP-11 computer in 1972.

In 1978, Brian Kernighan and Dennis Ritchie produced the first publicly available description of C, now known as the K&R standard.


The UNIX operating system, the C compiler, and essentially all UNIX application programs have been written in C.


C was initially used for system development work, particularly the programs that make-up the operating system. C was adopted as a system development language because it produces code that runs nearly as fast as the code written in assembly language. A C program can vary from 3 lines to millions of lines and it should be written into one or more text files with extension ".c"


It is sometimes difficult to come by good C developers, as the language is quite old and mostly serves specific niches. C developers are often expected to develop code that specifically integrates into the operating systems, operating system modules, embedded systems, or low-level libraries for other high-level languages such as Node.js, Python, and Go.

    Best course ever. The tutorials and challenges are simple and keeps me engaged. Colt knows where we could be lost in the coding and gives a heads-up too, which is very helpful. After completing this course, my expectations are set very high that I am unable to find a satisfying Java course to learn next. It will be awesome if there are other Java courses to learn from Colt.
