Niklaus Emil Wirth is a Swiss computer scientist, best known for designing several programming languages, including Pascal, and for pioneering several classic topics in software engineering. In 1984, he won the Turing Award for his innovative work. Computing Now board member Christian Timmerer interviewed Wirth in January about his career and experiences.
