Great course.

Hello Daniel, Thank you for this amazing course, I hope that you can add part 2 where we learn how to complete it fully including an assemblre or linking library instead of relying on nasm and gcc-multilib so we can make it cross platform. Kind Reagrds, Fedi

I first bought this course on Udemy. After watching it a few minutes I realized that this course phenomenal, so bought all modules. I just started to learn C, so it's challenging and that's a good thing. With this course you really apply C what is a completely different experience than to learn some theory and implement snippets. The only thing I really miss in this course are UML like diagrams to provide a better overview. Sometimes it's hard to follow when you have a struct containing other structs that contain even more structs....all deeply nested...some diagrams would really help here. So I have it draw it myself to don't lose myself ;-) Anyway, a great course and I'm happy that there's still 90% left for me. I'm confident that after this course my C skills will have improved dramatically :-D Cheers

Very good course! Very clearly to explain the complicated topic! AMAZING! And when the 3rd module will be released? Looking forward to it!

This course was very helpful getting my C++ skills back up to snuff after not using it for many years.

Great explanation of complicated topics.
