IMHO, C is one of the simplest languages of all to learn. It has very
few core constructs -- those can be mastered in a week or so. After that
evrything is just variations of a common theme. Just keep the
documentation of whatever you are currently working on handy. There is
no need to learn about every possible library out there.
