Identify this Turing Award winner, who at the age of 26 invented an algorithm which has now become the most popular way to do what it does :)

P.S: If you are a CS student, there is no way you have not studied his algorithm, unless you were in VTU and decided to skip the entire unit and “prepare” for only 4 questions :)

    Edsger Dijkstra.

    Or as a couple of my profs used to call him, Digikistra. *gag*

    The person is “C. Antony R. Hoare”.

    Working for the British computer company Elliott Brothers, he developed Quicksort, an algorithm that would go on to become the most used sorting method in the world.
    Quicksort used a series of elements called “pivots” that allowed for fast sorting.
