Dennis Mac Alistair Ritchie (September 9, 1941 – October 12, 2011), an internationally renowned computer scientist who created the C programming language and also made significant contributions to the development of the UNIX operating system, the early guru of IT has died at age 70.

In 1967, he began working at the Bell Labs Computing Sciences Research Center, and in 1968, he received a Ph.D. from Harvard under the supervision of Patrick C. Fischer. His death came a week after the death of Steve Jobs, although Ritchie’s death did not receive as much media coverage, his influence was comparable.

If we work today on what we do, it’s thanks in part to him, so we are grateful for what he did. He was truly an inspiration to all of us.
