Benefits of Programming

Why should I learn C Programming language? It is one of the widest used of all programming languages, including its variants. And it has been around for a long time. That’s like saying I should learn Latin; it was used for centuries across Europe and in theory learning it makes Italian and Portuguese easier. Learning C teaches you many good practices that help you as a programmer, though it can be time consuming to learn. C is often called a low-level language.

You can jump in and get started with other languages high level languages like Java or Java Script. Learning something like C teaches you more about data types, pointers, passing values by references. In the end, this makes you a better programmer. That’s as bad as someone saying I should learn Haskell to learn programming discipline. Yoga would be better. If you want to get into programming, learning C is going to give you a phenomenal head start. Because it has been around for 30 years and I can find a job migrating their system.

Because it is hard, so once you learn that, everything else is easier. If it is hard, I want to learn an easier language like Objective C or Java. Learn C, and C++ and Objective C are all minor variations you pick up quickly instead of three languages to tackle. C is a functional programming language. Most modern applications are object-oriented. Object-oriented code is easier to use and re-use. C is far faster to execute on the server.
