Learn Intricate C Programming - Functions and Recursion

Recursion in simpler terms is solving a problem by solving smaller problems of “same” form and using their results.

What Will I Learn?
  • It is a course dedicated to topic of Recursion.
  • This course will lay down the foundation of Recursion.
  • Students will get a good hands-on with Linux Operating system as programming examples are explained on linux gcc compiler.
  • C is reasonably close to the machine. Students will learn various optimization techniques in order to become the expert programmer.

What is the course about?
This course provides a  thorough  introduction to the C programming language which is the core of the UNIX/Linux operating system and other embedded systems.
We're going to help us is to put some of building blocks in their own functions when they become too large, or when they do a different thing than the rest of the code. For instance, the assignment might call for a number to be read, then the sum of all number between 1 and it calculated and printed. It would make sense to put the code for calculating the sum into a separate function so that the main code a) looks cleaner, and b) the function can be reused elsewhere.
Programming assignments and laboratory exercises are required to do by students. Please remember that this is a serious course on programming. I believe that programming language like C cannot be learned in few hours. It required continuous practice. Students may have to put a lot of efforts in order to become expert in programming and make the best use of this course.
What kind of material is included?
1. This course consists of high quality training content using quality videos with industry oriented hands-on examples.
2. I have tried to include the juice of my 10 years of Programming experience in this course.
3. The focus is on giving real life essential tricks and skills.
4. This course will have sets of online programming assignments and objective type quizzes.
5. I suggest students to take this course with pen and paper handy. Note the important points and take part in discussions. The exercise is the most important part in learning any language. I advise students to take the problems after each section.
How is the course structured?
1. A perfect blend of theory and programming.
Why take this course?
1. Learning C programming language is basic to learn all other programming languages such as C++, Java, Python, etc. Because, all other advanced programming languages were derived from C language concepts only.
2. This course will tends to replace text books on C programming ie it will be a complete reference of Function and specially recursion.
3. You will learn how programming languages work with data, what program flow is, and how to use functions, methods and routines, recursion.
4. You will also get step-by-step instructions on how to create simple and advance C programs and how to run them.
5. For the college going students, this course helps in improving grades in college curriculum and increases the chances at the final Campus Interview.

Who is the target audience?
  • IT professionals with little or no C programming experience
  • Software professionals
  • School Students who are beginning in programming language.
  • Computer and IT hobbyists

All functions have a type: they return a value of that type whenever they are used.

Preview 09:44

Before the Standard, it  was not possible to give any information about a function's arguments except in the definition of the function itself.  The information was only used in the body of the function and was forgotten at the end.

Function Arguments

Function prototypes allow the same text to be used for both the declaration and definition of a function.

Function definitions - Compound statements and declarations

One of the technique based on similar lines is recursion. Recursion in simpler and theoretical terms is solving a problem by solving smaller problems of “same” form and using their results to compute the final result.

I  was apparently not a diligent student. I worked with C/C++ and HTML, CSS, JavaScript since 12 years. I speak to the world on software freedom. From the beginning of my career I have always worked in large and small teams. While programming has been more of a individual activity, it is the collaboration in teams that can make and break a project. I have been interested in algorithms and data structures and its implementations especially in Java since university.

I am a co-author of various manuals, and has edited and reviewed more than a dozen other books. I wrote columns that provided keen insights into the little algorithmic nuggets that we use in our programs. My favorite books includes  "Writing Efficient Programs", "More Programming Pearls" and "Programming Pearls". The best programmers not only continuously improved the quality of their work, they also influence other members of their team.

I learned about project management and team interaction working at various organisations. I still believe that humans are still at the beginning of the code revolution. Programmers and users are still imitating what came before, and haven’t even imagined all that could be in the future. One thing I am sure of is that code is a type of language, based on the same logic as Sanskrit, and for the first time in history, language can change the physical world. Programming is a literature.

I've always had a passion for teaching in seminars and corporations during my consulting projects. My online school eLearningMedium gives me the opportunity to share my knowledge with students of all backgrounds and experiences across the globe! I'm really excited for this opportunity to bring to you real-world practical experience!

I've plans of making some of the courses about Algorithms and Data Structures, Java, HTML5, Software Engineering and Software Project Management. I give all my heart into creation of courses. I always try to explain everything the easiest possible way. I'm sure that my courses will help you in the adventure.
