Ada Lovelace #ALD13 @findingada

NewImage

Today is Ada Lovelace day, where people around the world celebrate the accomplishments of women in science and math! Each year we dedicate a day’s worth of blog posts to women that we think are “Adas” in their own fields. This year we have an amazing group of women that we are celebrating, in addition to Lady Ada herself.

Ada Lovelace is described as the world’s first computer programmer. Born in 1815 she accomplished much in her short life and had a profound effect on the future of mathematics and programming. She was the first person to write an algorithm intended to be processed by a machine and her notes on this became a large part of the history of early computers.

To learn more about the “origin story” of Ada Lovelace click through this incredible comic that artist/animator Sydney Padua made for Ada Lovelace day back in 2009. It became so popular that she developed it into a series where Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage fight crime in the mid 1830s. Sydney also has a graphic novel coming out next year so keep an eye out for that as well!
