Default C language inventor spurns Google's language exam

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/04...take_our_test/

Quote:
Google won't allow the co-inventor of Unix and the C language to check-in code, because he won't take the mandatory language test.

That is an example of what is wrong with a world that doesn't realize everybody needs to learn how to code like it's a second language. That and rigid rules with no room for common sense. I'm glad Ken is fighting for something worth fighting for here.

Co-developing an operating system written in a language that changed the entire universe as we know it: $15.6 septillion.

Being asked to prove you actually know how to use it: priceless.
