Description of Resource: 
The Alef programming language was designed as part of the Plan 9 operating system by Phil Winterbottom of Bell Labs. In a February 2000 slideshow, Rob Pike noted: "…although Alef was a fruitful language, it proved too difficult to maintain a variant language across multiple architectures, so we took what we learned from it and built the thread library for C."
