Francesco Cesarini on Twitter: "It is with great sadness that I share news of Joe Armstrong's passing away earlier today. Whilst he may no longer be with us, his work has laid the foundation which will be used by generations to come. RIP @joeerl, thank you for inspiring us all."

Joe Armstrong passed away. feel very sad, he's my programming hero. and I became a better programmer because of him.

some articles on Joe:

Joe wrote Why OO Sucks, but as people pointed out, he didn change his mind at later stage: see Ralph Johnson, Joe Armstrong on the State of OOP and Learning Elixir, frst impressions ( plz don't kill me ! )

I'm re-reading his chapter in coders at work and will read Programming Erlang again.
