Learn C Programming – Second Edition: A beginner’s guide to learning the most powerful and general-purpose programming language with ease

Get started with writing simple programs in C while learning core programming concepts

Key Features:

Learn essential C concepts such as variables, data structures, functions, loops, and pointersGrasp the core programming aspects that form the base of many modern programming languagesWork with updated code samples and cover array declaration and initialization in detail in this new edition

Book Description:

The foundation for many modern programming languages such as C++, C#, JavaScript, and Go, C is widely used as a system programming language as well as for embedded systems and high-performance computing. With this book, you’ll be able to get up to speed with C in no time.

The book takes you through basic programming concepts and shows you how to implement them in the C programming language. Throughout the book, you’ll create and run programs that demonstrate essential C concepts, such as program structure with functions, control structures such as loops and conditional statements, and complex data structures. As you make progress, you’ll get to grips with in-code documentation, testing, and validation methods. This new edition expands upon the use of enumerations, arrays, and additional C features, and provides two working programs based on the code used in the book. What’s more, this book uses the method of intentional failure, where you’ll develop a working program and then purposely break it to see what happens, thereby learning how to recognize possible mistakes when they happen.

By the end of this C programming book, you’ll have developed basic programming skills in C that can be easily applied to other programming languages and have gained a solid foundation for you to build on as a programmer.

What You Will Learn:

Implement fundamental programming concepts through C programsUnderstand the importance of creating complex data types and the functions to manipulate themDevelop good coding practices and learn to write clean codeValidate your programs before developing them furtherUse the C Standard Library functions and understand why it is advantageousBuild and run a multi-file program with MakeGet an overview of how C has changed since its introduction and where it is going

Who this book is for:

If you’re an absolute beginner who has basic familiarity with operating a computer, this book will help you learn the most fundamental concepts and practices that you need to know to become a successful C programmer. If you’re an experienced programmer, you’ll find the full range of C syntax as well as common C idioms covered in the book useful.
