RIP Dennis Ritchie, Thank you Sir
Another sad news. Dennis Ritchie , who invented UNIX and C died October 8th 2011. Whats more important is the news did not hit the mass media until yesterday / today i.e October 13th 2011. Dennis Ritchie is one of the pillars of modern day computing. Without him the foundation behind the cool gadgets we use could not have been possible. I was lucky enough to see him during my employment in Lucent/Bell-Labs. Many a time I wanted to go to his room and ask for a picture. Could not dared that. I am sure many of us started beginning in our career with UNIX/C.
Are you sad ? did C language help you in your career ?
