Building on the course Programming Fundamentals, this course will teach you how to write code by first planning what your program should do—an important approach for novice and professional programmers. You will learn how to compile and run your program, and then how to test and debug it. This course builds on the Seven Steps you have already learned and provides a framework for systematically testing for problems and fixing them, so you can find and fix problems efficiently.

TOP REVIEWS FROM WRITING, RUNNING, AND FIXING CODE IN C
I really enjoyed this course. This course seemed to be a little hard at the beginning. But it was really good. I learnt a lot of things. Thank you!
I learned very much in this course like testing, debugging but should explain more about emacs, Valgrind, gdb, etc.
Learnt a lot in this course. Got an exposure on the Git and Unix commands. This course is very good and improved the practical knowledge.
grader is too confusing but the faculty managed to overcome it with their experience. I request the faculty to use alternative methods for ppe tool to not confuse students
