C is the programming language, it was developed at AT & T’s Bell laboratories of the USA in 1972. It was developed by Dennis Ritchie. He is referred to as the Father of modern Computer Science. In 1973 Dennis Ritchie and Ken Thompson’s created the UNIX operating system by using C.
C is reliable, simple, and easy to use. C has survived the industry for more than three decades.
Learning C before its successor like C++, C# or Java has a lot of advantages. C improves your basic programming skills. It will give you a good hold over programming, the language elements and build a strong foundation.
Major parts of popular operating systems like Windows, UNIX, and Linux are still written in C.
Many device drivers are written/coded in C.
C can be used to interact with hardware devices.
C is popularly used for embedded programming for different devices. This program needs to run fast but has only limited memory. With this constraint, C is the best option.
C is also used to built gaming frameworks like DirectX. In the games, the program must react to user input fast, and here speed is the key point. C serves the purpose.
Moreover learning C is easy. We will start with the basics of the C programming language.
