Dennis Ritchie: An Unsung Hero Of Software
As I’m sure, you’re familiar with Steve Job’s death this past year. Well, another man passed away in the same month, without whom, we would not have much of what we use today.
Without Steve Jobs there is no iPhone, iPad, iTouch, or Macintosh.
Without Dennis Ritchie there is no C. Without C there is no Windows, Unix, Linux, C++, Objective C, MacOS X, IOS, Photoshop, Firefox, Google, Safari, Playstation, or Xbox.
This man revolutionized the way applications are written with C. 90% of all applications are written with it.
I’m not saying take any praise away from Steve Jobs in any way, but give some credit where credit is due!
