Below is a 27 minute promotional video produced in 1982 by Bell Labs, where we meet some of the giants on whose shoulders we all stand today. Included in the video are:
- Dennis Ritchie (UNIX, C programming language)
- Ken Thompson (UNIX)
- Alfred Aho (AWK programming language)
- Brian Kernighan (AWK programming language, many C and UNIX programming books)
- Lorinda Cherry (many document processing tools)
In addition, you'll get a good look at some computer hardware from the early 1980s which is around the time I was starting my transition from TRS-80s to IBM PCs.
