 Advanced C Programming

  Course Code - PK-105   Duration - 4 Days

C is a small, powerful, general-purpose, high-level programming language that has been the industry standard for the development of efficient and portable software for many years. C is used to write both application and operating system software.

This course presents some of the more advanced features of C and discusses how to use them to develop sophisticated programming techniques. 

The course begins with a rapid review of the fundamental features of C before going on to explore some of the more advanced features of C. The skills associated with the application of these features are developed through a range of extensive hands-on exercises. Good programming practice is promoted with an emphasis on the production of reliable C applications. 

 

 Objectives

 
 

Understand and apply some of the more advanced features of C. 

 

 Who Should Attend?

 
 

The course is aimed at programmers who already have a working understanding of the fundamental features of C and wish to develop their C programming skills.

 

 Prerequisites

 
 

Students should be familiar with the fundamental features of C and be actively involved in programming. A suitable level of C experience would be 'C Programming' ('PK-106') or equivalent, plus some practical software development in C.

A natural progression from C could be to C++. Java is another possibility in that it shares much of the C syntax.
