About Course

Become C code expert in Visual Studio on Windows! Learn about arrays, pointers, files, strings, dynamic memory and more!


This course will teach you to program the C language in Linux OS from the ground up. You will learn everything from the very fundamentals of programming right through to the complexities of pointers, addresses, and File IO. Maybe you’ve tried to master C before but failed. Or, you may be new to C or new to programming. If so, this course is for you.

When it comes to programming language for beginners, C is an excellent choice. It will not only educate you on programming fundamentals but will help you to master this powerful language that is widely used in the industry today. The c programming language is one of the good choices for learning computer programming for beginners. The basic C programming on Linux is manifested in this course by using different examples for beginners.

This course begins with a gentle introduction to C but quickly moves on to explain some of its more complex features: everything from C’s ‘scoping’ rules to the curious connection between arrays and memory addresses. By the end of the course, you will have a deep understanding of both the C language itself and also of the underlying ‘architecture’ of your computer, the Linux operating system.

The Uniqueness of this course

In this course, you will be able to learn how to write and run your C programs, read user inputs and command-line arguments, compare string using conditional statements, iterating through the elements using for loop and while loop, and using the functions. The most fundamental parts of programming are described here using simple examples to start programming with the C language. The declarations of different variables, conditional statements, loops, and functions in C are explained in this course.

This set, of course, is dedicated to the development of Linux systems. This tutorial focuses on C programming and covers such concepts as types, operators and variables, flow control, functions, pointers and arrays, structures, basic I/O, coding style, and building a program. Primarily, this course will deal gradually with the intricacies of writing C code on Linux, and then you will learn to code on Linux systems that will help you to comprehend other platforms. You will learn how to define a structure on beginner-level concepts.

Some of you might argue that C is not the best beginner-level language ever; however, from the kernel, of which a substantial part of it is written in C, to lots of everyday user-land applications, C is used massively on your Linux system. C is an old, well-established programming language, a vital tool in many parts of the IT world, from embedded systems to mainframes. Therefore, it is not fair to assume that C skills will only enrich your CV, but they will also help you to solve many issues on your Linux system if you start to practice a lot by reading and writing C code. You will also have an understanding of all the essential tools installed on your Linux system, the GCC compiler, the Binutils package, and a text editor or an IDE or some sort of IDE depends largely on your preferences.

What you will learn

  1. The fundamentals of programming – from the ground up
  2. Develop and debug code in the C programming language
  3. Discover the foundations of computer programming and Linux, manipulate the command line, manage processes, files and memory, and compile C code with Linux
  4. Interpret, analyze, and implement important computer algorithms
  5. Observe, manipulate, and optimize computer memory using pointers in the C programming language
  6. Test knowledge and understanding with end-of-section quizzes 
  7. The nitty-gritty details of the C language and using Source Code Examples (Over 50 projects included)

What Will I Learn?

  • Master C programming concepts from the ground up
  • Use the source code examples to learn step-by-step
  • Understand the special features of C: pointers, header files, null-terminated strings, buffers, IO
  • Videos explain everything in minute detail
  • Test your understanding with end-of-section quizzes.
