Paperless Post is happy to host a Q&A with Brian Kernighan on Tuesday, October 20th from 6-8pm in the Paperless Post offices. Food and drinks will be served!
Brian Kernighan contributed to the development of Unix, and he is also coauthor of AWK, AMPL, and The C Programming Language book.
Brian Kernighan received his PhD from Princeton in 1969, and was in the Computing Science Research center at Bell Labs until 2000. He is now a professor in the Computer Science Department at Princeton, where he writes short programs and occasional books. The latter are better than the former and certainly need less maintenance.
If you would like to attend the talk, please RSVP and be sure to bring a photo ID to check in with building security.
Additionally, if you have a question that you would like to ask Brian Kernighan, we are collecting ideas over at the Paperless Post Dev Twitter account. Tweet us with the hashtag #AskKernighan!
