This just came in:

ACM has named Alfred Vaino Aho and Jeffrey David Ullman recipients of
the 2020 ACM A. M. Turing Award

	https://awards.acm.org/about/2020-turing

for fundamental algorithms and theory underlying programming language
implementation and for synthesizing these results and those of others
in their highly influential books, which educated generations of
computer scientists.

Most of us probably have several of their books on the shelf; I certainly do!

I've got "The Design and Analysis of Computer Algorithms" and "Principles of Compiler Design" aka the "Dragon Book" on my shelf. 


Congrats to both!
