C for dummies

Slice 1C is widely known as the language that serves as the base for many other languages. It is a language that was built specifically for the UNIX Operating System. According to Wikipedia,

In computing, C (/ˈsiː/, as in the letter C) is a general-purpose programming language initially developed by Dennis Ritchie between 1969 and 1973 at AT&T Bell Labs.Like most imperative languages in the ALGOL tradition, C has facilities for structured programming and allows lexical variable scope and recursion, while a static type system prevents many unintended operations. Its design provides constructs that map efficiently to typical machine instructions, and therefore it has found lasting use in applications that had formerly been coded in assembly language, most notably system software like the Unix computer operating system.

Today we’ll be learning the basics of this language and how to work with Xcode. To work out this tasks, you’ll need a code friendly text editor like Sublime Text, TextWrangler or Notepad++ and a compiler like GCC (For Windows download and tutorial click here).  The video tutorial is attached below so watch it and feel free to ask any questions.
