“Shebang, I’m your father.” Today we celebrate the birthday of the shebang. Forty-two years ago, Dennis Richie, the spiritual father of the shebang, wrote the following: `The system has been changed so that if a file being executed begins with the magic characters #! , the rest of the line is understood to be the name of an interpreter for the executed file.` And so, the she(ll)bang is born.

It’s not the only birthday to celebrate today. Kaboom Shebang is going live and will share the 10th of January with the Unix shebang. 🎈

We write articles and publish presentations on subjects like digital technology, programming, cyber security, blockchain, data science, and the web. The first article is coming up.
