Dennis Ritchie: RIP

Dennis Ritchie, Computing Pioneer, C Creator Dies | Stuff.co.nz.

One of the first computer science books I ever bought was ‘The C Programming Language‘ by Brian Kernighan and Dennis Ritchie. (The original, not the ANSI C updated edition). Even now, after multiple culls of books, it’s one book that has so much emotional and nostalgic connection that I still have it (along with Kernighan and Pike’s ‘UNIX Programming Environment‘).
