Description

C is one of the most widely-used languages for systems software and workstation application programming, largely due to its power and flexibility. This course will provide you a highly effective, structured approach to learning the C language.

Programming skills will be enhanced as delegates will be able to use the powerful features of C to best effect and avoid errors that lead to faulty code or code that cannot be maintained. This programming lab is outstanding because of its emphasis on writing style, pitfalls to avoid and techniques to use that make the code clear, concise, and maintainable.

The lab is comprised of reference material and lab exercises that cover each of the major areas of C. Exercises may be completed in either Windows using Visual Studio or Linux.
