I'm half-way through this free 12-week course on Edx and wanted to recommend it to anyone interested in learning C, it's really amazing.

Some of the good parts it covers:

  1. Getting set-up with a virtual machine in which a compiler and IDE is already set-up; cutting out a significant portion of getting started with a compiled language such as C
  2. Practical examples of what variables are, what an array is and how pointers work.
  3. Highly enthusiastic and brilliant lecturer (David J. Malan)

Here's the first lecture from Week 0.

Enjoy!
