Thank God it's C!

I'm currently re-reading with enormous interest the famous book that gave birth to the C language, and I'm really fascinated by the enormous amount of useful programming techniques contained there. The C programming language is still (and it will always be) a milestone in the history of programming languages. Without the C language, probably we would still think in terms of simple Assembly commands to commit to memory and use with awe. Instead, thanks to the C language we can now write programs that are easy to read and understand. Without the C language, probably JavaScript wouldn't exist or, in a certain sense, it would be very different from what it is today. The C language taught us the familiar notion of functions and many other concepts that we use in our daily work on the web. We should always be grateful to the C language and its creators for what we do and are today.
