Welcome to the Wikiversity content-development project for the C computer language, part of the Division of Computer Programming.



C is one of the most widely used programming languages in the world.[1] Therefore, C is a common choice for people wanting to learn how to program. This course assumes no previous programming experience and will guide you through all of the aspects of programming in C.

The course will roughly follow the C Programming book at Wikibooks as well as provide supplementary reading material for each lesson primarily through Wikipedia. Exercises will be given at the end of each course along with possible solutions. It is highly recommended that all of the exercises be worked because programming is learned by doing not just reading.


Wikibooks-logo.svg Wikibooks has a book on the topic of C Programming.
