C Course

December 21, 2003

Toward the end of last school year, my Computer Science teacher asked the class if anyone would have been interested in a C Course. I submitted my interest in the topic. So, at the beginning of October, we started the C lessons and this past week we had the last lesson.

Previously, I only knew QBasic, so that is my term of comparison. I’ve found C to be way more elegant, probably due to the usage of curvy parenthesis instead of END, NEXT, and similar keywords to delimit code blocks within cycles and control structures.

I’m not sure if the difference has been the language or how it was teched to me, but I found it way more powerful and dangerous than QBasic at the same time. I’ll continue writing C programs in the following months, and maybe that feeling will change with the experience.
