Why Do People Program In C?

Given the fact that C is such an old language (dating from the early 1970s) and lacks many of the features of more modern language (such as object orientation, garbage collection ¬ and even a string data type!) why is it still so widely used? In fact, C continues to be one of the most important languages for professional development.

I’ve written an article on the Udemy blog to try to explain what C is and why it is so important: “What is C Programming?” which explains a few important details about the c programming language.
