Is Your Company New to Open Source? Here's Where to Start

Paying tribute to technology icon Dennis Ritchie

Most of you who follow the tech industry have likely heard of the passing of computer programming icon Dennis M. Ritchie (also known as dmr) on October 8 at the age of 70. While it could be argued that Linus Torvalds is more famous in today's world than Dennis Ritchie, it's quite safe to say that there wouldn't be a Linux without Dennis Ritchie.  dmr created the C programming language which makes up 95% of the code base of the Linux kernel according...
