Uh, no. Programming is not really taught here in computer science, that
is assumed you either can do or learn yourself.
Though I did start programming with Pascal.
I think I somehow like that I can decide more quickly if it's a single
value or an array pointer with the &[] syntax, it also makes the meaning
more obvious IMO in some (rare?) case e.g. a completely unrealistic example:
if (buf[n]) p = &buf[n];
if (buf[n]) p = buf + n;

It's just a very slight preference though, as can probably easily be
seen by looking at my code...
