No matter what anyone tells you, it’s advisable for kids learn C for their future, rather than Mandarin.

This programming language is one of the most popular in the world and House4Hack is offering you the opportunity to learn to code it next weekend.

The Saturday, six-hour course will give you the basic you need to write C including essentials such as arrays, pointers and memory allocation. Of the 15-part course, one of them is titled “Hello” which we assume is when they teach you to programme “Hello World” and not just a general greeting, we hope.

Mario de Sousa, a software engineer with more than 15 years of experience, is leading the course.

A quick note if you’re planning to attend; this isn’t a seminar aimed at anyone who has never coded before. House4Hack is targeting this course at people with some experience in programming but not in C.

Now, there’s a bit of time between the publication of this article and the event, so you could learn to code ahead of it, but that would be a hell of an undertaking.

But it’s not impossible, especially with so many places to do so on the internet.
