Ada Lovelace

Ada Lovelace was the world’s first computer programmer. She wrote programs to run on Charles Babbage‘s Analytical Engine. Unfortunately, the machine was never  built. I first heard of Ada when I started programming in 1996.

Match 24th was “Ada Lovelace day”, an international day of blogging (video logging, podcasting, comic drawing etc.!) to draw attention to the achievements of women in technology and science.

I missed the day itself, so I don’t know if I’ll create a post of my own, but I suggest you mosey on over to the list of existing posts.
