C, one off the betters programming languages

Introduction

C is a programming languages wich was developed by Dennis Ritchie between 1969 and 1972

As B, his predecessor, is a language orientated to re-implement the Unix operating system. It has since become one of the most widely used programming languages of all time,[7][8] with C compilers from various vendors available for the majority of existing computer architectures and operating systems.

A bite of history

  1. The origin of C is closely tied to the development of the Unix operating system, B inability to take advantage of some of the PDP-11's features, notably byte addressability, led to C. The name of C was chosen simply as the next after B.
  2. The development of C started in 1972 on the PDP-11 Unix system and first appeared in Version 2 Unix. The language was not initially designed with portability in mind, but soon ran on different platforms as well: a compiler for the Honeywell 6000 was written within the first year of C's history.

A little more

  1. Also in 1972, a large part of Unix was rewritten in C. By 1973, with the addition of struct types, the C language had become powerful enough that most of the Unix kernel was now in C.
  2. Unix was one of the first operating system kernels implemented in a language other than assembly. Earlier instances include the Multics system which was written in PL/I), and Master Control Program (MCP) for the Burroughs B5000 written in ALGOL in 1961. In around 1977, Ritchie and Stephen C.

What abouit money

  • Most programmers will make between $40,000 and $120,000.
  • Junior prgrammers, or people starting out in smaller cities can expect to make around $30,000-$50,000.
  • Most average programmers are bringing in around $60,000-$85,000 a year.
  • Senior programmers will typically reach $100,000.
  • And highly valued senior programmers can easily make $120,000-$150,000+.
In resume, C is one of the most valued programmes in the world, ┬┐you should run to leran it now!
