RIP Dennis M. Richie

Dennis M. Richie was a giant of our craft and a truly great teacher. Millions of folks owe their passion for programming to K&R. It literally started their careers.

We are very sad to hear that Dennis M. Ritchie passed away after a prolonged illness. We join others in offering our condolences to his family and hope he is in a more comfortable place.

Thank you so much. You’ve made such a difference to so many.

Rest in peace.

 

– Arun C. Murthy
