Course description
In this course, we will examine a key concept, foundational to any programming language: the usage of memory.This course builds upon the basic concept of pointers, discussed in C Programming: Modular Programming and Memory Management, and introduces the more advanced usage of pointers and pointer arithmetic. Arrays of pointers and multidimensional arrays are addressed, and you will learn how to allocate memory for your own data during program execution. This is called dynamic memory allocation at runtime using pointers. Within moments you will be coding hands-on in a new browser tool developed for this course, receiving instant feedback on your code. No need to install anything! In this course, you will gain experience with programming concepts that are foundational to any programming language. At the end of this short course, you will reach the fourth milestone in the C Programming with Linux Professional Certificate program, unlocking the door to a career in computer engineering.This course has received financial support from the Patrick & Lina Drahi Foundation.
