The Lovie Awards, named in honor of the “first computer programer” Ada Lovelace, the Lovie Awards (a “sister award” to the Webbys) aims to honor innovation creative ingenuity among all of the outstanding work in Europe.
‘Lovie’, named in honour of Ada Lovelace, represents outstanding achievement in computer technology. Ada Lovelace is credited as being the first programmer and is a lasting symbol of European innovation and creative ingenuity.
The heart is a universal symbol for love and represents the passion evoked by awesomeness on the internet. No other medium has created such enthusiastic, dedicated followers quite like the web!
It’s interesting they’re calling it the Lovies after Ada Lovelace. Under websites they do have “Education” – that’s a good start, hopefully they’ve have more how-to content like categories and talk about Ada Lovelace as they promote the awards. Maybe it’s time to do up some awards for best programming resources online? GitHub would win a few categories for sure 🙂
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
