    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.
    So…here 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.
