C courses?

Why are there no C courses? There is C++ but not C. Why?

Welcome to Codecademy!
Codecademy just hasn’t added it yet I guess. I know that a lot of people asked for C++, and that is why Codecademy has it. C++ anyway was added just a week or two ago so its still recent with an update coming on Monday.

I hope this helps =)

Ah okay, thanks for the quick reply :slight_smile: I hope they can add C courses soon. I would really appreciate it if those courses had some socket tutorials too :3

Thank you!

I think @sonnynomnom should be able to help you here on maybe getting a course. He’s the Curriculum Developer here on Codecademy.

Alright, thanks. I appreciate it. I know it’s a bit much to ask, but I would really appreciate it if the tutorials could have something to do with sockets later on. Have a good day :slight_smile:

Thanks! If he comes, he would be the one to talk to to first even think about a course getting started. I’m not an important person who can do that type of stuff.

Most likely C will never be added. It is an unused and old language. They only teach it in College to give you the most basic concepts and do not teach you much of it. In coding schools, they do not teach it at all. Most likely you will never use C.

C++, C#, Python, and Java are really your best bet. And there is no reason to believe Lua is not coming.

But IMHO learning, or building a course for C would be a waste of time.

I would agree that C# would be better, but the basics come from C. C is still slightly used today actually.

Currently, they are working on C++ still, and just updated it today :grinning:

Like what @trevorhodges said, this course is new to Codecademy so they wouldn’t put a course in right now besides the Holidays are coming up. Like @colethelion321 said, C# has a better chance of a course though since it is more used.

C++ was just recently added to the set. C is not very used, and somewhat old.

I would argue that C while old is still very much used today and worth learning, it is still heavily used for bootstrapping, embedded code, drivers, and is the heart of most operating systems. C could be a great advanced course.

That is true.
