Course description

C/C++ - Introduction to Programming Using C Part 1

The introductory Programming with C/C++ short course starts with programming basics, then focuses on applying programming practice to the C programming language. You will spend a lot of time developing their coding skills and by the end of the C/C++ - Introduction to Programming Using C Part 1 short course will be able to write applications in C.

It teaches key features of imperative programming using C and is an ideal preliminary to the  Object-Oriented Programming Using C++ short course.

You will be exposed to programming problems and solutions that highlight key features of imperative programming. You will be given numerous examples and gain transferable knowledge for any programming domain you may wish to progress on to.

Some of the teaching covers the common integrated development environments (IDEs) popular on Windows operating systems; however, all the examples are compatible with compilers running on Linux, Windows and Mac OS X environments

The course takes place in our central London location and is taught in the evenings, allowing you to continue with full-time employment.

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • write a program in C
  • compile and run it on a PC computer
  • debug it
  • write so as to avoid the worst side effects of bugs.
