C is one of the most widely used programming languages of all time, and C compilers are available for the majority of available computer architectures and operating systems.

Programmers around the world embrace C because it gives maximum control and efficiency to the programmer. If you are a programmer, or if you are interested in becoming a programmer, there are a couple of benefits you gain from learning C:
  • You will be able to read and write code for a large number of platforms:- everything from micro-controllers to the most advanced scientific systems can be written in C, and many modern operating systems are written in C
  • The jump to the object oriented C++ language becomes much easier. C++ is an extension of C, and it is nearly impossible to learn C++ without learning C first
