I've (quite literally) started to learn programming through CS50 and am currently at the end of the week 2 lectures.
I'm having a problem that I seem to miss some concepts not explicitly explained in the lectures. For example, week 1 lectures don't explain pointers, but I suddenly see them everywhere, including a WEEK 1 short (https://courses.edx.org/courses/HarvardX/CS50x3/2015/courseware/b2f7d86728354866a2c4438e76c3ec55/4e7caab4e40f4e539ba6d1031d808972/).
David seems to just skim over the concept of command line arguments(week 2) or the existences of escape sequences, such as \n \r \' to printf(week 1). I can't find additional information, but suddenly everyone seems to know them. Is there some part of the courseware I'm missing, by any chance?
Oh, I'm taking this course through edX by the way. Thanks!
