Happy Birthday Ada!

Ada_Lovelace

Today would have been Ada Lovelace‘s 200th birthday. She is known as the first computer programmer (at least theoretical programming), sidekick to Charles Babbage, and daughter of Lord Byron. Her notes on the Analytical Engine would go on to inspire Alan Turing and the first modern computer. Her mathematical abilities and tenacious personality, by Victorian England standards, are an inspiration to all women in technology.

Happy Birthday Ada!
