hello friends, welcome to the programming world.
"Coding taught me never to give up if something doesn't work."
my journey to c programming:
Firstly, when I start programming it seems to be the most difficult task that I ever had. I have searched on many sites from where I can get the best material for learning c programming to enhance my knowledge. Then I got an idea to take advise from my superior. He advised me and also provided me with the best platform for learning c programming language. So, today I am here to serve you and help you to make it easier.
I hope that you may enjoy learning.
introduction to c:
Before starting the C programming, there are many questions that arises in our mind.
- What is C programming?
- What is the need to learn C programming?
- What are the benefits of learning C programming?
Also, there are many more doubts occurs while learning C language. I try to make it all clear one by one. So let’s get started.
1- what is C programming ?
C is a general-purpose programming language that is extremely popular, simple and flexible. It is machine-independent, a structured programming language which is used extensively in various applications.C is a computer programming language. That means that you can use C to create lists of instructions for a computer to follow. C is one of the thousands of programming languages currently in use. C has been around for several decades and has won widespread acceptance because it gives programmers maximum control and efficiency. C is an easy language to learn.
C is what is called a compiled language. This means that once you write your C program, you must run it through a C compiler to turn your program into an executable that the computer can run (execute).
You need not to be worry we will discuss earlier each terms in detail.
what is the need to learn C programming ?
C programming helps us to understand the fundamental of computer theories. most of the theories related to computer computers like Computer Networks, Compiler Designing, and many more, these all computer theories is based on C programming language and requires a good knowledge of C programming if you are working on them.
C is the most popular language worldwide. everything from microcontrollers to operating systems is written in C. Since, it is very flexible and versatile, allowing maximum control with minimum commands.C language has a rich set of data types. C language has less number of standard libraries and library functions, but they can be used to design almost any kind of functions.
what are library functions we will discuss it later.
what are the benefits of learning C programming?
There are lots of benefits, why we preferred to learn C programming language. Here we discuss some of them.
C is one of the oldest languages that cannot be replaced by any other programming languages, as it is the core of every machine. Let me make it more clear that, why learning a programming language is beneficial to us?
Here, we take an example: suppose I have a friend who only understands Russian and doesn’t understand any other languages. and I asked him, what is 2*2? then he might have some problem because he won’t understand anything, and unable to answer my question.
What I mean to say is, if you want to ask anything to anyone, you should know their language, only then you can get your answer quickly and accurately. Similarly, a computer is your smartest friends, if you want your work done, you should understand the language of the computer. You should know at least one language which computers understand easily. And the C programming language is simple and flexible, and also it is very easy to learn than learning any other programming language.
So, now i hope you may understand the importance of C programming.
For the learning phase, I will consider doing C first and then any other language with other subjects like algorithm, data structure and many more. C programming is an art and emotion... C existed more than 4 decades because C is an evergreen programming language and still it continues...when it comes to embedded systems C has no competition at all. So, my advice is always to choose C as your first language and master it...
