Behind every thing that is easy for us now, there’s a programmer, and more often than not, most of the users remain oblivious to the person who’s responsible for it. Read on to get familiarized with few of the greatest programming personalities the world ever saw, as compiled by BloggersPassion.



#10 Richard Brodie



Richard Brodie created Microsoft Word. Brodie joined Microsoft in 1982 as 77th employee, and a founding member of the Microsoft Application Division.



Brodie distinguished himself at Microsoft by creating the first version of Microsoft Word in less than seven months. In addition to primary authorship of Microsoft Word, Brodie wrote Microsoft's first C compiler, the original version of Notepad, and Word for the IBM PC Jr.



The Microsoft Word was first released in 1983 under the name Multi-Tool Word for Xenix systems. Subsequent versions were later written for several other platforms including IBM PCs running DOS, the Apple Macintosh, the AT&T Unix PC, Atari ST, SCO UNIX, OS/2, and Microsoft Windows. It is a component of the Microsoft Office software system; it is also sold as a standalone product and included in Microsoft Works Suite.
