Ashish, your last line reads this:

"TL;DR: Hackathon on Sept 14/15, come write some code, no slides required,
cool prizes, great mentors, *chief guest responsible for the invention of
C/C++/Unix.* Tech event of the year, don’t miss."

Above, it is mentioned that he headed that center, which invented
C/C++/UNIX, and here, you have written that he is responsible for the
invention of C/C++/UNIX, this is the point which group has pointed out.

Kindly, get the facts right and then post.

Regards,
RK
