SF001 – C Training – Advanced C Programming Course
Advanced C programming course skims through the basics of C and soon jumps over to core of C programming language which looks simple but difficult to master. Our C Training will make the participant learn deep C secrets and develop a fairly advanced level of C programming expertise which is essential to write complex mission critical systems and application software.
Advanced C Programming course will be delivered by our Founder/Director who is an Expert with 17+ years of experience in Linux Kernel and SAN software development. The C training flow will be an assignment driven model so that participants can develop an expert level C programming skills.
Participants will be writing lots of C programs dealing with operator precedence, conditional constructs, strings, pointers, arrays, arrays & pointers, double pointers, function pointers, pointers to arrays, internal storage for various data-types, creating in memory data-structures, bit-field operators, recursions, function call and stack formation, standard file I/O library, buffered IO, etc.

It was a wonderful course, a thorough study through the bits and pieces of Storage Devices and the other advancements in the SAN technology which was very informative for me. Well prepared slides, practical thoughts and fully interactive class.
The Linux System Programming training presented by Manish was very good. His presentation was very precise, clear and in-depth covering the real-time design problems and solutions.
The depth of C coverage, the common pitfalls, the presentation by Manish and his pace were all remarkable. Gave a clear picture of the inner working of C language design.
The course was well designed and coverage was satisfactorily deep. The linux programming assignments were designed to get a feel of real time issues and covered lot of areas of uncertainty. The project work suggested at the end of the course was invaluable.
Thank you for providing such an awesome experience on Linux Device Driver Programming. The real beauty in this training that I could witness was its practical exposures to design, issues and explanations on the same in a neat way.
I checked a lot of other training centers before deciding to go with Sanfoundry and am glad I did. The training was very interactive and covered the most important industry aspects of SAN technology needed currently. I admire Manish's immense knowledge on the subject and his friendly attitude.
Advanced C Course content quality was awesome. Lab exercise by Manish are really good as well as tough to cover C programming concepts indepth. The quality of teaching is superb.
