At a Glance: C
Developed by Dennis Ritchie in 1969 at AT&T Bell Labs, C is an imperative programming language that has gained widespread use across the globe for its simplicity, efficiency, and inherent affinity with machine-readable code. If you desire portability and efficiency, compatibility with a wide range of platforms and operating systems; are developing software for Unix; or require low-level access to memory, you’ll need the expertise of a seasoned C programmer.
C supports structured programming, lexical variable scope and recursion, making it an especially popular language for systems programming. A C programmer can help you implement an operating system on your network or implement paging virtual memory or device driver software for your operating systems. They can take advantage of the language’s thin layer of abstraction and low overhead to write efficient algorithms and handle large data structures. C developers are often experts at GPU programming, data analysis, machine learning, image processing, pattern recognition, and data mining.
