C tutorial - History - [ID:467] (3/8)

in series: C programming tutorial.

video tutorial by gasto, added 12/07

Series ID: 138 Video ID: 467

All programming languages have derivations.

Mr. Dennis Ritchie, at the moment working on Bell Labs, created the C programming language, derived from B, a language created by Mr. Kenneth Thompson.

The B programming language lacked of type for variables. So variables were created with generic use in mind. In C the basic types are: float int char

The C history is laid very near the history of the Unix operating system, since the most acclaimed distribution of Unix was written in C( for it's code portability to other platforms).

Visit the C Console Programming video series for updates on C programming from me.

Very thorough breakdown for C, please keep posting videos, I have learned more in the last 30 minutes of how C works than in a week of youtube videos.

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for gasto

Thank you very much for the video
