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.
