Anders Hejlsberg Receives Dr. Dobb's Journal Excellence in Programming Award

Apr 03, 2001, 01:00 ET from Dr. Dobbs Journal

    SAN MATEO, Calif., April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Dobb's Journal magazine is
 pleased to announce that Anders Hejlsberg is the recipient of the
 2001 Dr. Dobb's Excellence In Programming Award.  Hejlsberg is a software
 engineer best known as author of Borland's Turbo Pascal, the ground-breaking
 development environment of the early 1980s, and chief architect of its
 successor, Delphi.  Hejlsberg is currently a Distinguished Engineer in
 Microsoft's developer division, where he was the architect for Visual J++ and
 the Windows Foundation Classes, chief designer of the C# programming language,
 and a key participant in the development of the .NET Framework.
     "It's easy to forget about the excitement Turbo Pascal created and the
 impact it had on programmers in the 1980s," said Dr. Dobb's Journal
 editor-in-chief Jonathan Erickson.  "The first release actually fit on a
 single floppy diskette, and it did as much -- if not more -- than anything to
 establish the personal computer as a viable computing platform.  And to think
 there are thousands and thousands of lines of Turbo Pascal source code still
 in use today."
     Dr. Dobb's Excellence In Programming Award is granted annually to
 individuals who, in the spirit of innovation and cooperation, have made
 significant contributions to the advancement of software development.
 Previous recipients include Linus Torvalds, Larry Wall, James Gosling,
 Ron Rivest, Guido van Rossum, Jon Bentley, and others.
