Much to everyone’s anguish

Who is this computing pioneer, and what programming technique is named based on him?

(My sympathies to anyone who has been forced to use this to code.)

Cracked by shenoyvarun86 , Dibyo , Vijay Shankar , varuns88 , Ajay Parasuram , udupendra and Ananth.

Answer
Charles Simonyi, a programmer-guru type chap who’s responsible for one of the few good MS products, MS Excel.

The Hungarian Notation of variable naming was named after him (since he’s from Hungary).
