Why learn C programming and C++ programming & How to
C Programming is considered as one of the best and easy to learn programming language. C programming was introduced many decades ago and still it is one of the most popular languages in the programming world. When I started with programming, I had a question in mind – How to learn programming?
There were many programming languages available for me to start with, like C, C++, Java, C# and so on. To be frank, I had started with Java programming. Initial few says were awesome. Started with an introduction to Java, then started with java basics which included statements, loops, etc. and then with classes. Eventually, things started getting complex. I was unable to cope up with the sudden bombardment of programming concepts on me. It was like all under one roof and that roof was about to fall on me. 😀
Then, I decided to make my approach systematic and climb the ladder step by step. Remember, my ultimate goal was to learn Java, but in a systematic way. I consulted my professor and asked for a guidance. He suggested me to move step by step. I still remember his words – “You should never try to jump from the first step to last step. You will be in trouble. Rather, climb one step at a time and you will reach your destination with few efforts”.
He asked me to start with C programming and once I gain expertise in C programming, I should start with C++ programming and followed by Java concepts. C and C++ programming languages form the base of any object-oriented programming languages. I followed his guidance and started with C programming followed by C++ programming language. I made sure that my concepts related to C and C++ are clear before moving ahead for Java. After few months, I started with Java programming and to my surprise I found it very easy to learn.
How to learn C Programming
You can learn C programming through reference books available in any nearby local store or if you want to learn it online, then you can always visit Learn C programming site (www.learnconline.com). This site has helped more than approx. 8 lakh students till now and very soon going to hit 1 million mark. And the best thing is that it is free to learn. 🙂
How to learn C++ Programming
Once you are confident with C programming concepts, you can start learning C++ programming from free C++ programming tutorial site (www.learncpponline.com)
Learning any programming language might seem difficult. But if we follow a systematic approach, then it becomes very easy to grasp the concepts. As an experienced individual, I would always recommend you to begin with C and C++ programming languages before diving into the sea of other programming languages.
