Hi There!

Post icon  Posted 27 February 2009 - 01:18 PM

Hi, guys. My name is Jake. I have a lot of experience with web programming and some experience in various computer programming languages. I'm here because I decided I want to learn C (not C++, I wanna learn C fully before I continue in C++). I am hoping that I can get a lot out of this site.

Hello Jake!

Why did you decide to learn C instead of C++?

What programming languages do you use?

I already know some C++ and people recommend C over C++ 90% of the time in my experience. Also, I need to learn it before I learn C++ or C++ will be too difficult. I know:

Web Languages:
HTML
CSS
Javascript
PHP
Perl (Learning Soon)

Application Languages:
C++ (Some)
C (Learning Now)
Visual Basic
Java (Some)

I guess that's all.

Hehe, hopefully it will make me so much money in the future.

I just wanna learn C since it's been the foundation for a lot including full operating systems. C++'s time will come in the future.

Also, I love the ranks people have here lol. Your a D.I.C Addict :P

I'm relatively new around here, but having learned C first and then C++ I just want to add a word of warning. The problem I've had historically having learned them in that order is that frequently I end up writing less effective C++ code because I end up writing C code to do things that I could have accomplished easier with a class, especially when it comes to string manipulation.

It may be just a newbie issue on my part, while C was at one point my primary working language, C++ has always been more of a labor of love and something I *wanted* to work with.

Anyway... for what it's worth.

Hi Jake,
If you plan on doing any programming for Unix or Linux then learn C.

Not sure if I'm going to program for UNIX or not, but I'll still learn C. I don't think it will be a problem switching over to learn C++ in the future as I already know some and it will jog my memory.

Hello Jake. Welcome to dream.in.code.

My 2...it seems to me that it would be easier to learn C++ first and then C (or even learn them both at the same time). I learned (ok am still learning) C++ first before I saw any C code, but it seems to me that C++ is more advanced. So if you can do C++ then you can do C, too. They're pretty similar, I think.

It might be harder to switch your thinking from C to C++ than the other way around. And, from what I've seen, anything you can do in C, you can also do in C++ but not the other way around. (at least that is how I think it is!)

So yeah...welcome to the site. Learn them in the order that suits you best. Enjoy the site!

:)
