The C Programming Language (sometimes termed K&R, after its authors' initials) is a computer programming book written by Brian Kernighan and Dennis Ritchie, the latter of whom originally designed and implemented the language, as well as co-designed the Unix operating system with which development of the language was closely intertwined.

Dennis MacAlistair Ritchie (Bronxville, 9 de setembro de 1941 — Berkeley Heights, 12 de outubro de 2011)   foi um cientista da computação estadunidense, notável pela sua influência em linguagens de programação como ALTRAN, B, BCPL e C, e em sistemas operacionais como o Multics e o UNIX.
Dennis MacAlistair Ritchie (* 9. september 1941, Bronxville, New York, USA – † 12. október 2011, Berkeley Heights, New Jersey) bol americký programátor, známy hlavne ako tvorca programovacieho jazyka C a spoluautor operačného systému Unix. Vyštudoval fyziku a aplikovanú matematiku na Harvardovej univerzite.
In a 2011 interview, Thompson stated that the first versions of Unix were written by him, and that Ritchie began to advocate for the system and helped to develop it: I did the first of two or three versions of UNIX all alone. And Dennis became an evangelist. Then there was a rewrite in a higher-level language that would come to be called C.
