Another sad news


#1

Dennis Ritchie passed away.
I’ve started learning C in 1989 it was my third programming language. I still have his book in Russian.

RIP


#2

I must have been learning the C language at about the same time - My father lent me his own Richie and Kernighan C book in French - Also my first structured language after MS GWBasic and assembler… Was missing the “continue” instruction in there at the time :wink:

A great loss.

Why we keep hearing this about good people :frowning:


#4

I read his book in French as well, even though I speak English natively. It was the only one for sale in the little book store in Bouake (Ivory Coast).


#5

It is hard to imagine our world if DMR hadn’t created C and co-created UNIX. You will find C at the heart of just about any sophisticated piece of tech today. UNIX is kind of the Mother-OS that inspired almost all that followed.

Amazing … contributions.
