Dennis Ritchie, Father of C and Co-Developer of Unix, Dies13:53, 14 October 2011


The passing of Steve Jobs is world news - the name everyone knows obviously for the  innovation behind his Apple empire.

But another death, equally as sad (if not more for developers and the like) is death of Dennis Ritchie. The father of C and one of the developers behind Unix.  Shame this didn't get the coverage it deserved, as most of my IT career is based on his work in some way.

A nice summary of his achievements:
