These courses really are a good introduction to C programming with the added value of using Linux to do it.

The web tool that is used in these courses allows for excellent visualisation of memory usage which is especially handy when learning about pointers.

You do not even need to have Linux installed, a web version of Linux is provided. I recommend running a local copy of Linux though as this will make your experience a lot smoother.

I learned a lot from these courses.. The only downside for me were the easy projects at the end of each module. If you elect to pay for the courses you do not need to pass the project to receive a passing grade for the module-end and I was disappointed they were not challenging at all.

The good thing is that unless you really want or need the certificate you do not need to invest money in the courses, I guess.

Highly recommended.
