Rob Pike

BIO - Full Bio

In 1981 he wrote the first bitmap window system for Unix systems, and has since written ten more. With Bart Locanthi he designed the Blit terminal; with Brian Kernighan he wrote The Unix Programming Environment and The Practice of Programming . A shuttle mission nearly launched a gamma-ray telescope he designed. He is a Canadian citizen and has never written a program that uses cursor addressing.

Fun Facts:

Rob is quite a multidimensional person: A genius programmer, an Olympics medal winner, a telescope designer, and... well known for his appearances on ``Late Night with David Letterman''. He is the coauthor of a couple of great books introduced before: The UNIX Programming Environment and The Practice of Programming, and finally, do not forget to try his cheesecake!
