Yes and its faster than php and html 5. But it depends on which platform which you are coding for. For instance Java is best for Android... Ofcourse you have to know the platform you are developing for

C is very much in the picture. In the right hands, its still very elegant as a low level language and can be very efficient with a small footprint. It is still alive at microprocessor or embedded system level and it is the grand-daddy of many modern day languages that derive from its syntax and structure(e.g. php,Java,C++, C#....) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:C_programming_language_family

- For Android, C can be used for native development (http://developer.android.com/tools/sdk/ndk/index.html ). Learning C++ would also be a plus(no pun intended).

- For Apple, there's a C-derived language called ObjectiveC that implements OO concepts in a Smalltalk flavour.

Knowing C is a definite plus in not only appreciating an imperative language and reducing the learning curve for C-like derivatives, but also gives good insight into the system-level interaction with hardware.
