Code compiler pioneer Frances Allen dies at age of 88

IBM confirmed that computing pioneer and company fellow Frances Allen died of Alzheimer’s on her birthday, August 4th, at the age of 88. She was best known for making vital contributions to compilers, or the software that turns raw code into fast executables. From 1966 onward, she and scientist Cocke wrote papers detailing algorithms and frameworks that helped compilers become much more efficient.
