What is the importance of C Programming?

Why Every University and Collages Teach C programming in Starting instead of any other Programming language?
in this article we cover all Benefits and Some interesting facts of c
programming. which never tells by your teachers.

Benefits of C Programming

  • ​Increase your Coding speed and you get confidence
  • Introduce New Programming Terms and New Words
  • ​C will train you to be a Disciplined Programmer
  • You Enough capable to create your own games
  • ​Helps to understand the fundamentals of Computer Theories
  • Add +1 Programming Language in Your resume

Amazing Facts of C Programming

  • Previously, C was Considered as the high-level Language but today most of the programmer considers it as low-level language as it supports only Scalar operations.
  • C-18 is the latest version of C program it was Published on June 18
  • C is regarded as one of the oldest and fundamental languages widely used all over the world
  • Dennis Richie and Kerninghem wrote the book “ C Programming Language”
  • Today’s most popular Linux OS and RDBMS MySQL have been written in c

Linux is written in C

Kernel of the most popular operating system Linux is written in C.
Linux is also written mostly in C, with some parts in an assembly. About 97 percent of the world’s 500 most powerful supercomputers run the Linux kernel. It is also used in many personal computers. The first operating system to be developed using a high-level programming language was UNIX, which was designed in the C programming language.

Create a Game

Project: Simple Dino Game

This mini project is a Dinosaur jump game that appears in Offline google chrome. User can play the game any time they want. The whole project is developed using C programming language. Only two buttons are used in the game; “x key” and “space bar”. X key to quit the game and Spacebar to jump. Play and score as much as you can, this is an interesting simple game developed specially for the beginners too, and it’s easy to operate and understand by the users.


[epcl_tab title=”Tic-Tac-Toe​”]

Project: ​Tic-Tac-Toe​

The game is to be played between two people (in this program between HUMAN and COMPUTER).

One of the player chooses ‘O’ and the other ‘X’ to mark their respective cells

The game starts with one of the players and the game ends when one of the players has one whole row/ column/ diagonal filled with his/her respective character (‘O’ or ‘X’).



​Oracle database development

Oracle database development started in 1977, and its code was rewritten from assembly to C in 1983. It became one of the most popular databases in the world.

Microsoft’s Windows kernel is developed mostly in C, with some parts in assembly language. For decades, the world’s most used operating system, with about 90 percent of the market share, has been powered by a kernel written in C.also, In 1985 Windows 1.0 was released. Although Windows source code is not publicly available, it’s been stated that its kernel is mostly written in C, with some parts in assembly

Mac computers are also powered by C, since the OS X kernel is written mostly in C. Every program and driver in a Mac, as in Windows and Linux computers, is running on a C-powered kernel Both iOS and OSX (the “Apple OS”), are written in a combination of C and Objective-C, C is used for the mach kernel and other lower levels. Objective-C is used for the higher levels.

​ One of the most popular uses of the C-language was the creation of compilers. Several popular compilers were designed using C such as Bloodshed Dev-C, Clang C, MINGW, and Apple C.

Without learning a bicycle you can’t Improve your Driving Skill, C programming just like that it provides you root basics of learning variable datatypes, array, etc. which is more important in your Programming journey


After learning C programming you easily move on any other object-oriented programing language

​Yes! No matter what the year is running right now, C is the mother of every programming language. It gives you a sneak peek of how computer programming work, I’ve seen Developer and Programmer struggling on the internet to rewrite a C algorithm to other programming languages because he or she didn’t know very basic and normal concepts of Coding
