Before we move forward it is often useful to look back. Today’s post is the first of a three-part series looking at the history of the major programming languages and technologies that underpin application development on the iOS platform. In today’s post i want to examine the creation and subsequent rise of the C Programming Language, from its early inception at the AT&T Bell Labs through the efforts to introduce standardization to its current ubiquity as one of the most used programming languages of all time. In doing so I want to help you understand the influence that C has had on the more recent programming languages such as Objective-C (the topic of the next post) and understand how Unix, the operating system that the C Programming Language was created to develop, remains the core backbone of the iOS platform today.
