The C programming language has retained its relevance for close to 50 years. The code for most major operating systems and performance-critical server code in some leading data solutions continues to be written in the C language. In this course, you will begin by learning about the basic properties of C, the compilation process of the C language, and common IDEs used to write C code. Next, discover how to install the Clang compiler for compiling and running C on Mac and the Visual Studio Code IDE to write C code. Next, set up the minGW compiler for C on Windows. Finally, explore the basic syntax of C code, write and compile code and view its results, and explore the warnings and errors that occur when the syntax is violated.
