Isaac Newton once said he stood on the shoulders of giants. Dennis Ritchie was a giant whose shoulders people like Steve Jobs stood on.

Dennis Ritchie, Creator of the C Programming Language & UNIX is dead at age 70.....all programmers owe him a moment of silence!

Pioneer of Computing Dead...

*Dennis Ritchie has graduated from Harvard University with degrees in physics and applied mathematics and has started began working at the Bell Labs Computing Sciences Research Center and received a Ph.D. from Harvard.
*He is the creator of the C programming language and a key developer of the Unix operating system, and as co-author of the definitive book on C, The C Programming Language
* He is one of the pioneers of modern computing. The C language is still widely used today in application and operating system development

You don't know him ? He is the Father of C, without him Operating Systems(Windows, Apple) wouldn't be here, Games, Programs, Apps on your Apple, Android, wouldn't exist. Many say he is the Father of Computer Science, He has so many achievements..

Dennis Ritchie (1941-2011). His pointer has been cast to void *; his process has terminated with exit code 0.

Truly awesome guy, thanks to him we now have C, which is an amazing language!
Also, please do not say that this guy is more important than Steve Jobs, both deserve respect. You may hate apple, but Steve in his beginning days did actually make massive accomplishments. Both had their separate fields, and both deserve equal respect for themselves.
