Peter Naur, co-creator of ALGOL programming language has passed away at 87

ALGOL (short for ALGOrithmic Language) is a family of imperative computer programming languages, originally developed in the mid-1950s, which greatly influenced many other languages and was the standard method for algorithm description used by the ACM in textbooks and academic sources for more than thirty years.

  • His death was announced by a Facebook post from the University of Copenhagen.

    The Danish born Peter Naur, received the Turing Award in 2005 for his contribution to the design of programming languages. Naur is the 'N' in BNF, the Backus-Naur-Form for displaying the exact structures of programming languages. BNF comes from the work of the Dane to ALGOL 60, ​​the version of the programming language that became available in 1960. ALGOL 60 was a major inspiration for the subsequent programming language PASCAL designed in 1968–69 and published in 1970 by Niklaus Wirth as a small and efficient language intended to encourage good programming practices using structured programming and data structuring.

    His funeral date is not yet set.
