Post Graduate Diploma in Computer Application (PGDCA)

The Post Graduate Diploma in Computer Application PGDCA course content includes: – Computer Languages such as C, C++, JAVA, Packages such as MS Office-Web Design, Oracle-VB, TALLY, MS Dos-Windows as Operating System – System Analysis & Data Processing. Many past students are working in reputed software companies. This application-oriented course is designed also to train students by professionals in Digital Electronics; Microprocessor; Computer Architecture; Computer Software & Elements of Hardware in order to qualify them for jobs in Computer Organizations. The course is administered through lectures and practicals in Software & Hardware.


C & C++: What is C?

The programming language C was originally developed by Dennis Ritchie of Bell Laboratories. It is a procedural programming language and is widely used for implementing system software. It is an excellent and powerful language because of the simplicity of expression, the compactness of the code, and the wide range of applicability. Also, due to the simplicity and ease of writing a C compiler, it is usually the first high level language available on any new computer, including microcomputers, minicomputers, and mainframes. It makes sense to learn C as it begins from the scratch and has the foundational concepts of the languages of the present day.

What is C++?

C++ may be called as a superset of C and a predecessor to Java. During the 1980s and into the 1990s, Smalltalk language was introduced due to the growth in object-oriented technology. The demand for Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) gradually began to replace the traditional structured programming techniques of C. C++ was made to meet this requirement and to also keep every desirable behavior and most of the undesirable ones of C. It provides general language improvements along with the OOP capability.

Future of C & C++

Last week, Herb Sutter, at Microsoft’s Build Conference said, “The world is built on C++ and so is Microsoft”. With windows 8 platform built on C++, it is again reminded to the IT industry that there are a lot of great uses for C++, particularly for OS-level work, low-level work (embedded devices, device drivers, etc.), certain high-performance applications where the overhead of a system like .NET or Java would be too heavy (like an office suite). Some developers will continue to use C and C++ for applications that can be handled by other less complex languages as well. As C++ work is of higher difficulty level and is not widely learnt, C++ developers are expected to have morejob security and better compensation over the long run.
