C is a powerful mid to low-level compiled programming language used in operating systems, as the base for higher level languages like C++ and Python, and in high-performance applications. It excels in speed and performance giving the programmer great control over the system.
The C language was created by Dennis Ritchie in Bell Labs in the 1970s. It was designed to be a system implementation language for the nascent Unix operating system.
