Overview

The C Programming - Advanced Data Types Certificate from EdX in partnership with Dartmouth College - DartmouthXand is part of the Professional Certificate C Programming with Linux.

Education

In this course, part of the C Programming with Linux Professional Certificate program,  you will define your own data types in C, and use the newly created types to more efficiently store and process your data. 

Many programming languages provide a number of built-in data types to store things such as integers, decimals, and characters in variables, but what if you wanted to store more complex data?

Defining your own data types in C allows you to more efficiently store and process data such as a customer's name, age and other relevant data, all in one single variable!

This course will provide a hands-on coding experience in a new browser tool developed for this course that will allow you to receive instant feedback on your code. No need to install anything! You will also gain experience with programming concepts that are foundational to any programming language. 

At the end of this short course, you will reach the fifth milestone of the C Programming with Linux Professional Certificate program, unlocking the door to a career in computer engineering.
