Looking at the other side


Edsger W. Dijkstra (EWD) was a Dutch computer scientist. After finishing his PhD. in theoretical physics at Leiden University, he spent his whole life helping to shape what today we know as Computer Science. As a tangential note, EWD preferred the term Computing Science because the field of study is not the computer (hardware) but the computing those computers perform (software)[1]. Sadly, the world does not care about these nuances as he does.
