C programming is a general-purpose, procedural, imperative computer programming language developed in 1972 by Dennis M. Ritchie at the Bell Telephone Laboratories to develop the UNIX operating system. C is the most widely used computer language.
C programming language is a MUST for students and working professionals to become a great Software Engineer specially when they are working in Software Development Domain:-
Easy to learn
It produces efficient programs
It can handle low-level activities
It can be compiled on a variety of computer platforms
C is a general purpose programming language, which has a strong connection with the UNIX operating system and its derivatives, since the vast majority of those systems were written in the C language.
The C language contains some basic ideas from the BCPL language through the B language written by Ken Thompson in 1970 for the DEC PDP-7 machines. The development of the UNIX operating system was started on a PDP-7 machine in assembly language, but it made very difficult to port the existing code to other systems.
