Synopsis

C is one of the most widely-used languages for systems software and workstation application programming, largely due to its power and flexibility. This course will provide you a highly effective, structured approach to learning ASCI Standard C revision C90 for experienced programmers who have had some exposure to similar languages such as Java or C#.

Programming skills will be enhanced as delegates will be able to use the powerful features of C to best effect building on the skill gathered from their previous experience in similar high level languages.

The C Programming Course for Experienced Programmers is outstanding because of its emphasis on writing style, pitfalls to avoid and techniques to use that make the code clear, concise and maintainable. It is designed to accelerate through the foundations of C programming as appropriate to the skill level.

In addition to the lecture material there are graded practical sessions that cover each of the major areas of C. There are also optional exercises for further study after the course. Delegates may take away worked solutions, together with some small sample demonstration programs.
