Brief Description Write powerful C programs. ..without becoming a technical expert! This book is the fastest way to get comfortable with C, one incredibly clear and easy step at a time. You’ll learn all the basics: how to organize programs, store and display data, work with variables, operators, I/O, pointers, arrays, functions, and much more. C programming has never been this simple! Perfect for beginning C programmers eager to advance their skills in any language. Follow it and you will learn the many skills early and junior programmers need to succeed by working through 52 brilliantly crafted exercises with accompanying videos and exercises from Zed Shaw. Fix your mistakes. Watch the programs run. As you do, you’ll learn what good, modern C programs look like; how to think more effectively about code; and how to find and fix mistakes far more efficiently. Filled with carefully explained code, clear syntax examples, and well-crafted exercises, this is the broadest and deepest introductory C tutorial available. It delivers step-by-step, hands-on experience that starts with simple tasks and gradually builds to professional-quality techniques. Each lesson is designed to be completed in hour or less, introducing and clearly explaining essential concepts, providing practical examples, and encouraging you to build simple programs on your own. This book teaches principles of programming, including structured code and top-down design. Many short, practical examples illustrate one or two concepts at a time, encouraging readers to master new topics by immediately putting them to use. Review questions and programming exercises at the end of each chapter bring out the most critical pieces of information and help readers understand and digest the most difficult concepts. A friendly and easy-to-use self-study guide, this book is appropriate for serious students of programming, as well as developers proficient in other languages. Whether you’re a novice or experienced programmer, this book will provide you with a clear understanding of this language, which is the foundation for many object-oriented programming languages such as C++, Objective-C, C#, and Java. This book teaches C by example, with complete C programs used to illustrate each new concept along the way. Stephen Kochan provides step-by-step explanations for all C functions. You will learn both the language fundamentals and good programming practices. Exercises at the end of each chapter make the book ideally suited for classroom use or for self-instruction.
