Course Description

This course is the FIRST, ONLY, and most comprehensive C PROGRAMMING course that brings the THREE ASPECTS TOGETHER - 1) On screen step-by-step explanation 2) Building programs in IDE and 3) hands-on exercises stepped through debugger. NO OTHER book, tutorial or course offers these unique set, anywhere on the internet.

Before you read further, see what my students are saying about this course:

"Nice content , clear explanation and step by step videos. This course is form scratch to advance and I very enjoyed this course and learned a lot . This is an amazing course of C Programming and play an important role to the foundation of other programming course. I recommend to everyone to join this course." - Waseem Rauf

Why is this C Programming course THE BEST? Our numbers speak for itself:

  1. The same C Programming course taught in classrooms over 18 years and 10000+ engineering students in India 
  2. You will feel you are learning face-to-face from an expert and friendly mentor.
  3. We are HANDS-ON: more than 60 actual programs solved step-by-step - nobody else teaches like us, guaranteed.
  4. See how programs are created step-by-step on screen, through the IDE and through the debugger
  5. STRONG FOUNDATION into the core concepts of the C Programming Language

"Having seen great many tutorials on the net - this course is easily #1. The teaching style is amazing - with writing on the screen - much better than KhanAcademy. Through every concept the inner working is explained - which is the core of the matter for C language."

"Special mention throughout the course - explanation of the memory constructs for every C concept."

"I would like to give 11 out of 10 - as this course has exceeded my expectations!! Thanks Udemy"

"Excellent course. A well-chosen level of information: from the basic (but not obvious) to advanced (but without a huge amount of details, which are not possibly to remember). Very good way of communication. No inconveniences often encountered in other courses like the useless movements of the mouse, clicking on everything what’s possible, repeating sentences several times etc...Thank you very much." 


What are the requirements?

ASCII (i/ˈæski/ ASS-kee), abbreviated from American Standard Code for Information Interchange, also known as US-ASCII,[2] is a character-encoding scheme.

Originally based on the English alphabet, it encodes 128 specified characters into 7-bit binary integers. It defines 95 printable characters, including the space (which is considered an invisible graphic), and 33 non-printing control characters - many of which are now obsolete.

Work on the ASCII standard began on October 6, 1960, with the first meeting of the American Standards Association's (ASA) X3.2 subcommittee. It was developed from telegraphic codes and its first commercial use was as a 7-bit teleprinter code promoted by Bell data services. The first edition of the standard was published during 1963, a major revision during 1967, and the most recent update during 1986. Compared to earlier telegraph codes, the proposed Bell code and ASCII were both ordered for more convenient sorting (i.e., alphabetization) of lists, and added features for devices other than teleprinters.

In C library and Unix conventions, the null character is used to terminate text strings; such null-terminated strings can be known in abbreviation as ASCIZ or ASCIIZ, where here Z stands for "zero".
