Ada Lovelace Day

March 24, 2010

Ada Lovelace arguably wrote the code for the first computer which was to be created by nineteenth-century scientist Charles Babbage. Honoring her generally unknown but important contribution to technology and science is also a tribute to the significant contributions that many women have made over time to this field. More about her life and work is on wikipedia. Other blogs/bloggers that have written about her legacy — and/or have been inspired by her include: Ele Weekend and Ada Lovelace Day.
