I am ginger thus have no soul.
C Programming Tutorials
Edited by Ginger Bill on
I have read through that series before and it is by no means for a beginner. I know it is "Learn C The Hard Way" but it really isn't a beginners guide more like a guide for someone who is very familiar to a programming language.

I also do not like how it is written and do not agree with a lot of what is said -- most of it, to put correctly, is bullcrap. The author pretty much dislikes C and even suggests at the end to learn something new. It seems that he doesn't know C that well or is oversimplifying things too much and causing a confusion.

I do like a "no nonsense" style but his book is full of nonsense. I won't say what is wrong here but I found someone who mainly agrees with me: http://hentenaar.com/dont-learn-c-the-wrong-way

Cool.

I'll spread it around.

Btw, Are you gonna go into Memory? I think it's very import for beginners as well as debugging, which most book don't teach.

this video is a good visual of the address inside the memory to maybe help newcomers!

Thank you.

I will cover memory in depth but I will not go into the stack or the heap for a quite a while as I just want people to get stuck in!

I am going redo the second episode as it is too long and "rambly". I will split into two parts: A Brief History of C, and The Process of making a program.
