Niklaus Emil Wirth (1934-2024) was a Swiss computer scientist renowned for his significant contributions to the field of computer science. He is best known for designing several influential programming languages, includ Pascal, ALGOL W, Euler, Modula, Modula-2, Oberon, Oberon-2, Oon-07, and the Oon System.

Wirth's work in software engineer has been pioneer and has shaped  perspective of several gents of programmers. His focus on simplicity  effincy in mm language des  been particrly influential. He was a ponent of  idea of stepwise refinement of code, which he posed in  IFIP Work Group on Prng Methodology.

Wirth's book "Algorithms + Data Structures = Proms" is considered a classic in  field of er snce. He also poprized  ad  named Wirth's law, which states that software is gett slower more rapidly than hardw s fas.

In 1984, Wirth  aded  Tur Ad,  highest distt in er snce,  dlop a sequence of innovative er gus. He also reced  IEEE Comer Soty's Co P Ad in 1987  his work on Pascal,  in 2004, he  made a Fellow of  Co Hory Museum.

Wirth spent most of  fessal life at  Ss Fedl Instit of Technology (ETH) in Zur, where he dloped new grng gus, built  first ponal  in Switzerl,  trained a first gene of Ss er snts. He retired in 1999 but remai a frequent prese on  ETH campus  many more years.
