Dennis Ritchie, father of modern computer programming.Even though billionaires like Jobs and Gates get the credit for “revolutionizing” the computer, Dennis Ritchie invented C programming and Unix, both of which are still providing the framework for every modern computer system today. Ritchie is frequently overlooked as one of the contributors to the computer but his innovations are still used every day, and have surely paved the way for new updates and ideas to come.

Long Overdue Pardon To Be Issued To Alan Turing – Father Of Modern Computers And Convicted Homosexual..."Alan Turing may have saved Britain in World War II, but he was castrated in 1952 for the crime of being gay. Now he is to be given a long overdue pardon."
English mathematician, logician and cryptographer, Alan Turing is famous for being the father of modern computer science. Turing’s greatest impact on our daily life was his work at Bletchley Park, the UK’s codebreaking centre, where he contributed to crack the Enigma code used by the Germans during World War II. It was considered decisive for defeating the Third Reich.
Alan Turing, famous mathematician, logician, and computer scientist, committed suicide on June 7, 1954 by eating an apple poisoned with deadly cyanide. Most well-known for his pioneering work in artificial intelligence and development of the Turing test, he was criminally prosecuted for being gay, and accepted chemical castration instead of prison. Turing is widely considered the father of modern computer science.
