Learning a language is not all about learning the keywords and functions. It is more about learning about the history and philosophy surrounding its conception. Only then can one become a true programmer and a true scholar.

History and traditions are what make us what we are.
Sohere are some facts about C language:

C was developed by Dennis Ritchie at Bell Telephone laboratories in 1972.

It was named C because many its features came another language called B which itself came from another language called BCPL.

There is a strong association between C and the UNIX operating system. Derivatives of UNIX like Linux, for example, are predominantly written in C.

Many new languages like python, php, etc have been developed in C.

C is still used extensively in systems programming, games and graphics, and in embedded systems.
