Advanced C Programming
8/31/2020 - 9/2/2020COURSE LENGTH:
9:00am - 4:30pm
The C Programming Language was originally created to write the UNIX operating system. It quickly turned into a multi-purpose language used by all types of programmers for a wide variety of applications. C is a small language that can be learned quickly. It is highly structured and modular, supporting both small and large programs equally well. This course fills the gap between an introductory course in C and more advanced application programming. Students learn about basic and derived data types, parameter passing, standard and low level file I/O, working with malloc and calloc, the memory layout of C programs, and linked lists.
AUDIENCE AND PREREQUISITES
C programmers who need to advance their coding skills.
