I just come to know about this sad news that Dennis Ritchie passed away, It is second blow to technology world after Steve jobs who has recently passed away. Dennis Ritchie is the first programming figure I come to know when I started my programming classes in C and C++ and that's why when I heard this news I feel sad about it and suddenly I remember my programming days and I thought about this post to pay my tribute and remember him.
There is lot of Great information available on Dennis Ritchie in web and Wikipedia but two of its main contribution is:
1) C Programming language, which is still number one after Java.
2) His Contribution in UNIX Operating System which is best Server Operating system available.
3) Author of book
Let’s remember this programming genius and pay 2 minute tribute to him, without his C language and immense contribution to programming language, community will never forget him.
May god rest his soul in piece.
