Requirements

In this course, we explore what pointers are, and how they make it possible to optimize program code.

 

In fact, you can put together programs without using pointers. But they dramatically speed up the program execution time, which is often very important when working with microcontrollers. In this course, given the complexity of certain data types and the value of bytes, an explanation of the effectiveness of pointer conversion will be explained.

 

Program performance can be significantly accelerated by the use of pointers when working on an algorithm. In this course, you’ll also learn how different types of pointers are used in C.

 

This course is designed to teach students how to use pointers in C for programming microcontrollers. The course starts with the basics of pointers and moves on to more advanced topics. Students will learn how to use pointers to create, read, and write data to microcontrollers’ registers and memory. The course also covers how to use pointers with arrays and strings.

 

If you’re looking for a comprehensive guide to pointers in C, look no further than this course. Pointers are one of the most important aspects of C programming, and this course will teach you everything you need to know. You’ll learn how to use pointers to create and access arrays, Strings, and structures. You’ll also learn how to use pointers to control program flow. The course is designed for beginners, so no prior experience with pointers is required.

 

Topics include:

  • Development Environment
  • What are pointers? How do they work? Why do we need them?
  • How to use pointers and memory allocation.
  • PASS BY VALUE VS. PASS BY ADDRESS
  • OPERATIONS ON POINTERS
  • Subtraction and Addition
  • Arrays relation with Pointers
  • Dangling, Wild, Void, and Null Pointers

 

 

You’ll also get access to the source code for all of the example programs covered in the course.
