Wednesday, 28 October 2020

This 2nd edition covers everything you need to begin writing programs, going logically through the development cycle from initial design and testing to deployment and live iteration. Dan Gookin covers the do's and don'ts of good clean writing and how to produce the basic―and not-so-basic―building blocks of source code.


The intended audience ranges from developers in tech industry, start-up, or just developing for pleasure at home, and is written to be easy-to-follow, informative, and an entertaining guide to the C programming language.
