Hi my name is Dave Andrews, today I'm going to talk to you a little about the C programming language. Now C is a very powerful programming language which has been around for a very long time. It's been extended and modified into another programming language called C and many languages are based on C such as C sharp which is one of the more newer programming languages that are available. Lets go to our computer and I'll show you a little bit about C. Now C has a fairly complicated syntax but once you learn how to read it and how to look at it, it's not that difficult to program in. Just go to Google dot com and to get started with C, I suggest you search for the phrase hello world in C. Now this pulls up probably the very first link here is an example program in C that is called hello world which is a program that many programmers write when they're learning a brand new programming language. This ones written in C and as you can see it includes the standard input and output library. And then it prints to the screen hello world. And it's all that it does. Now this is an example the C syntax where everything is enclosed in braces, your main function is the very first function that's ran. To learn C, you're going to almost do a lot of searches on the Internet for C programming tutorials. And this is one of the major sites around C programming dot com. It's all about C and C and basically it gives you all these tutorials that you can click on here to learn the basics of C programming language. Now many video games now a days are written in C and C and they will continue to be for some time because it's a very fast very efficient computer language to program in. My name is Dave Andrews and I've just told you a little bit about C.
