Pointers for C Programming - new course

Get this $95 course for just $15.

Pointers. In C, there is just no getting away from them. Understanding and being able to use pointers correctly (and safely) – well, it’s the difference between a professional programmer and an amateur. But pointers are really difficult to use. Aren’t they?

The fact of the matter is, they needn’t be. If you understand them. And that’s what my new course is all about. “Advanced C Programming: Pointers” explains pointers from the ground up. What exactly is a pointer variable and how does it work with addresses in memory? What is indirection? How can you avoid common pointer problems such as memory leaks and program crashes?

Topics covered include:

  • Pointers and addresses
  • Indirection and multiple indirection
  • Pointers and arrays
  • Pointers to structs
  • Data-type alignment
  • Generic pointers and casts
  • Null pointers
  • Memory allocation and reallocation
  • Freeing memory safely
  • Pointer arithmetic
  • Singly and doubly linked lists
  • Queues and stacks
  • Pushing and popping
  • Function pointers
  • Deep and shallow copying
  • Common pointer errors

…and much more

NOTE: This is not a course for beginners. It is aimed at programmers who already have a good working knowledge of C programming and who need to take the next step in mastering C by gaining a deep understanding of pointers. (If you are a beginner, you should sign up to my C Beginners Course first).

Course contents:

  • 58 Lectures
  • Over 3.5 hours of video instruction
  • Downloadable source code of all examples
  • Quizzes and course notes
  • Lifetime access
