C For Embedded


The C language course serves as a comprehensive and practical guide to software development. It provides the knowledge, techniques, and tools necessary to enable professional-level development of complex programs in the C language across various domains in the tech industry.

The C language course is a hands-on program, comprising over 80% hands-on training. It includes numerous classroom exercises and homework assignments with explained solutions on the website. It encompasses dozens of industry-related projects, interview preparation exercises, and, upon completion of the course, a section on C for Embedded Systems using ARM-based development boards.

Studying the C language provides an exceptionally strong foundation, as many more advanced programming languages have been built upon it. Proficiency in C will grant you a significant advantage when learning additional languages. Learning C is essential for those planning to work in low-level programming.

As a well-known and respected software house deeply involved in the industry, we employ the C language on a daily basis and provide development and support services to hundreds of high-tech companies. With this context, we've crafted an up-to-date and practical learning program that emphasizes exercises and practical experience.

The course is professionally written and delivered by top engineers with decades of industry experience. It has been successfully attended by thousands of participants, including numerous well-known high-tech companies.

This C language course focuses on software development using the C language. It covers all the necessary knowledge for code development, deep understanding of C, and the ability to take a project, perform software design, and implement the required functionality in C (across various operating systems such as Linux, Windows, FreeRTOS, and more).

C Programming Course for Beginners and Advanced

This course is designed for both beginners and advanced learners, tailoring the C programming course to those with little to no software knowledge and experience, as well as experienced programmers.

We have divided the course into two parts:

Basic C (C programming for beginners) - Designed for those with little to no knowledge of C or programming in general, focusing on the fundamentals required for language development. It enables an easy entry into the programming language and provides tools for practical handling. It starts with basic elements in C code, including how code is compiled and runs on processors, basic commands like variables, if ... else, loops, arrays, pointers, linked lists, and more.

Advanced C (Advanced C programming) - Intended for developers with a background in the language who want to specialize in advanced topics such as Bit Wise Operations, Binary Trees, Hash Tables, Sorting Algorithms, Embedded Systems, and more.

In which fields is C language used?

  • Developing command-line tools for operating system management tasks (administration tasks)
  • Learning C programming for beginners is the most essential tool and fundamental for developing real-time embedded systems.
  • Developing device drivers without operating systems.
  • Developing user-space applications on Linux-based platforms.
  • Developing kernel-space device drivers on Linux-based platforms.
  • Developing automation systems for development or final tests.

Learning C language will give you mastery over a language that serves as the foundation for all relevant languages today. As we mentioned, C language has significant advantages, making it popular today and expected to remain so in the future.


Topics Covered in the C Language Course

The C Language course is crafted at a high professional level and delivered by top engineers with decades of industry experience. It has been attended by thousands of participants, including renowned tech companies in the industry.

In the C Language course, we cover various topics from the software development world, including development environment, preprocessing, operators, and more.

C Language is one of the oldest programming languages in the world. Even today, it remains widely used, especially among Embedded Real-Time developers who utilize it extensively for developing Embedded Systems, Device Drivers, Linux Kernel, automated testing, and more.

With the knowledge and experience gained from C programming, you can easily learn other languages and integrate into numerous projects at the forefront of the industry and in leading tech companies around the world.

The uniqueness of this language is reflected in the following aspects:

  • Close to the Hardware — After writing the C source code, it undergoes the process of compilation and linking, ultimately generating machine instructions (opcodes) for the processor architecture. During program execution, these instructions are loaded into memory, and the processor executes them, implementing the required functionality.
  • Its Speed — Due to its proximity to hardware, C is known for its speed compared to other programming languages. For example, it is much faster compared to Java, which runs on a virtual machine and generates byte code. C is supported by most PC operating systems and embedded systems such as Windows and Linux. In fact, the core of these operating systems is mostly written in C.
  • Programming in C is highly efficient as it allows direct access to hardware (CPU registers) through the use of pointers. Early operating systems like Windows and Unix were developed using C. Even today, the Linux Kernel, which forms the core of the Linux operating system, is entirely based on C programming. This includes the networking stack, kernel device drivers, file systems, and more.
  • The noticeable use of C today is evident in the development and testing of Embedded Systems, whether they are embedded systems based on operating systems like RTOS, Embedded Linux, VxWorks, Psos, ThreadX, or development without operating systems (Bare-Board, Bare-Metal), which means developing directly on the hardware. Therefore, learning C is essential for RT-Embedded developers.

Who is the C course for?

  • Beginner programmers who want to integrate into the software field using the C language.
  • Individuals looking to professionally transition into the tech industry.
  • Hardware and software engineers, individuals with a bachelor's degree in exact sciences who are interested in learning C programming.

C Programming Course Prerequisites

  • Basic computer skills.
  • Background or experience in software development with high-level languages - an advantage, but not mandatory.
  • Professional knowledge interview.
