Anders Hejlsberg

Anders Hejlsberg is a prominent Danish software engineer who co-designed several popular and commercially successful programming languages and development tools. He was the chief architect of Delphi, he works for Microsoft as the lead architect of C# and core developer on TypeScript. Hejlsberg was born in Copenhagen and studied Electrical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark. While at the university in 1980, he began writing programs for the Nascom microcomputer, including a Pascal compiler, marketed as the Blue Label Software Pascal for the Nascom-2. However, he soon rewrote it for CP/M and DOS, marketing it first as Compas Pascal and as PolyPascal; the product was licensed to Borland, integrated into an IDE to become the Turbo Pascal system. Turbo Pascal competed with PolyPascal; the compiler itself was inspired by the "Tiny Pascal" compiler in Niklaus Wirth's "Algorithms + Data Structures = Programs", one of the most influential computer science books of the time. In Borland's hands, Turbo Pascal became one of the most commercially successful Pascal compilers.

Hejlsberg remained with PolyData until the company came under financial stress and in 1989 he moved to California to become Chief Engineer at Borland. During this time he developed Turbo Pascal further and became the chief architect for the team that produced Delphi, which replaced Turbo Pascal. In 1996, Hejlsberg joined Microsoft. One of his first achievements was the Windows Foundation Classes. Since 2000, he has been the lead architect of the team developing the C# language. In 2012 Hejlsberg announced TypeScript, a superset of JavaScript. Hejlsberg received the 2001 Dr. Dobb's Excellence in Programming Award for his work on Turbo Pascal, Delphi, C# and the Microsoft. NET Framework. Together with Shon Katzenberger, Scott Wiltamuth, Todd Proebsting, Erik Meijer, Peter Hallam, Peter Sollich, Anders was awarded a Technical Recognition Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement for their work on the C# language in 2007. A video about this is available at Microsoft Channel 9; the C# Programming Language, 2nd edition, Addison-Wesley Professional, ISBN 0-321-33443-4, 2006-06-09 The C# Programming Language, 3rd edition, Addison-Wesley Professional, ISBN 0-321-56299-2, 2008-10-18 The C# Programming Language, 4th edition, Addison-Wesley Professional, ISBN 0-321-74176-5, ISBN 978-0-321-74176-9, October 2010 JavaWorld of 1997 writes how Hejlsberg went to Microsoft: Microsoft offered Anders Hejlsberg a signing bonus of US$500,000 and stock options.

Sedelnikov (ship)

Sedelnikov is a Cargo Ship, operating on the Lena River from the port of Osetrovo in the town of Ust-Kut. The vessel is named after regional specialist Alexander Sedelnikov; the Sedelnikov was travelling with a barge loaded with cars down the river from Osetrovo. As the Sedelnikov does not have cabins, the passengers slept in their cars. At 2:00 AM on 19 July 2002 she collided with the empty bulk-oil tanker RT-774, as the latter sailed up the river in the opposite direction to the Sedelnikov. Three vehicles being carried by the Sedelnikov, two Kamaz trucks and a GAZ-3110 car, fell into the river, killing six people. One of the Kamaz trucks blocked the river, only 3 metres -3.5 metres deep at the point of the collision. The Ministry of Emergency Situations sent divers and a crane vessel operating from the passenger ship Zarya to the scene. By 22 July the bodies had been recovered and the cars lifted from the river, allowing the waterway to be reopened. Early reports from the investigators indicated that there were breaches of safety precautions in the way the cars were being transported, as they should not have fallen from the ship in the event of a collision
