Basics of C

What Is C?
C is a highly flexible and adaptable language. Since its creation in 1970, it's been used for a wide variety of programs including firmware for micro-controllers, operating systems, applications, and graphics programming.

When was C developed?
C was developed at Bell Laboratories in 1972 by Dennis Ritchie along with Ken Thompson. Many of its principles and ideas were taken from the earlier language B and B's earlier ancestors BCPL and CPL.

Who is the inventor of C?
Dennis Ritchie invented C, the computer-programming language that underlies Microsoft Windows, the Unix operating system and much of the other software running on computers around the world. Mr. Ritchie was a longtime research scientist at Bell Labs, originally AT&T's research division.
