Course Description

The course "C Programming and Assembly Language" is designed to teach students the fundamentals of both the C programming language and assembly language. This course is perfect for beginners who want to learn how to program and understand the low-level operations of a computer. The first part of the course covers the basics of C language, such as syntax, data types, functions, and control structures. Students will learn how to write simple programs and use C libraries to accomplish common tasks. The course also covers more advanced topics, such as pointers, arrays, and structures. In the second part of the course, students will learn about assembly language programming. Assembly language is a low-level language that allows programmers to directly control the hardware of a computer. Students will learn how to write simple assembly language programs and understand how they are executed by the computer. Throughout the course, students will learn the similarities and differences between C programming and assembly language programming. They will also learn how to use assembly language in conjunction with C programming to optimize code and achieve better performance. In addition to lectures and readings, students will have the opportunity to practice their programming skills through programming assignments and projects. These assignments and projects will provide students with hands-on experience in writing and debugging C and assembly language programs. By the end of the course, students will have a solid understanding of both. They will be able to write simple programs in both languages and understand how they work. This course is perfect for anyone who wants to learn the fundamentals of programming and gain a deeper understanding of computer architecture. Overall, This course is an essential course for anyone interested in programming and computer science. With its comprehensive coverage of both, this course is the perfect way to start your journey in programming and computer science. Author: Prof. Janakiraman Viraraghavan, IIT Madras (NPTEL)
