I’ve been wanting to write a post about the basics of C programming language so here I am. We’ve heard it before from several or our nerdy colleagues – “Oh, I took a C programming class back in college, but I forgot all about it”. Well that’s because you obviously haven’t built many applications using C. To really know something in programming is to actually have done it.
I myself fall guilty of this – except I managed to salvage a C book at some random book donation. It was a super thick book, you just can’t imagine a C programming book being any other way. Its hardcover was in pastel yellow, inside was a pretty rough read. To be honest I only made it half way through the book, this was back in the mid 90s.
