Dennis Ritchie : May He Rest In Peace

Just came to know that Dennis Ritchie, known to the world as the creator of C Programming Language has passed away recently.

May he rest in peace.

C has been at the foundation of almost all software systems and the world of software owes a great deal to this genius.

For me personally, if I hadn’t been introduced to C on that wonderful day by my friend Naga Sreenu, I wouldn’t be where I am, most importantly I wouldn’t be what I am today.  The initial infatuation and then love of C language, on Unix and that initial romance and excitement of solving C programming samples has turned my career forever.  And it changed the way I approach any problem since then.

Thank you so much and may he rest in peace.
