RIP Dennis Ritchie

Dennis Ritchie, an internationally renowned computing scientist who created the C programming language and co-developed the UNIX operating system, has died @ age 70 today.


Bell Labs president Jeong Kim sends this message:
Dennis was well loved by his colleagues at Bell Labs, and will be greatly missed. He was truly an inspiration to all of us, not just for his many accomplishments, but because of who he was as a friend, an inventor, and a humble and gracious man.

as a tribute to the great Computing genius of this generation, remember to “Write in C.”
