About the Course

Enhance your coding skills along your path to becoming a proficient C programmer with the essential concepts of functions and pointers. In this course you will be introduced to the concept of modular programming: that is, dividing up more complex tasks into manageable pieces. You will learn how to write your own functions (just like functions in mathematics for example). You will also gain insight into a computer's architecture and learn how its memory is organized. Given the vast amount of memory computers have these days, how does your program remember where a certain variable is stored? This brings about the important topic of how memory is efficiently addressed inside a computer, and with it, the topic of pointers. Pointers are often considered the most difficult part and main struggle for C program developers. We will introduce you to this central topic with our novel and innovative visualization tools and show you precisely how pointers work. No need to struggle! You will receive instant feedback on your code right within your browser. The programming concepts you will gain in this course are foundational to any programming language. C is a foundational programming language taught at engineering schools around the world, and represents one of the building blocks of modern computer information technology. Invented in the 1970’s. It is still one of the most stable and popular programming languages in the world. By the end of this course, you will have reached the third mile stone in the C Programming with Linux Specialization program, unlocking the door to a career in computer engineering. Your job outlook: - Programmers, developers, engineers, managers, and related industries within scientific computing and data science; - Embedded systems such as transportation, utility networks, and aerospace; - Robotics industry and manufacturing; - IoT (Internet of Things) used in smart homes, automation, and wearables. - IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization for the advancement of technology, ranks C as third of the top programming languages of 2021 in demand by employers.

I was very impressed with the quality of C Programming: Modular Programming and Memory Management. The teachers [Petra Bonfert-Taylor and Rémi Sharrock] are incredibly competent. The didactic material together with the learning environment are fantastic. Unfortunately, we have no way of controlling the speed of the videos and, in some moments, this would be more useful than going back in time. Even so, I am pleased to be able to complete the third course of the Specialization Program. Many thanks, Coursera, Dartmouth College, Institut Mines-Télécom and not least the Patrick and Lina Drahi Foundation, for democratizing quality education.

Excellent course! The concepts of pointer are explained quite well by the professors. Through their explanations and the help of the tool used in this course, I find it very natural to learn about pointer in C. Highly recommended if you want to learn about C programming.
