R.I.P. Dennis Ritchie

Filed under: Project Management — Jag @ 8:30 am

Dennis Ritchie, of “The C Programming Language” and Unix renown has moved on to program the great Unix machine in the sky. For those of us that cut their teeth on C and Unix in the late 80’s and early 90’s, he will be missed. His legacy is strong, and lives on in Linux, Android, MacOS, C#, C++ and Java. It is a fitting tribute that derivatives of Unix in the form of Android and iOS are giving Microsoft a big run for its money.

May his soul rest in peace.
