Ada Lovelace is the world’s first computer programmer.

From a young age Ada Lovelace was tutored in mathematics and science. A subject quite unusually taught to women in the 1840s.

Lovelace became a brilliant mathematician, thanks in part to opportunities that were denied most women of the time.

She wrote the world’s first machine algorithm for an early computing machine that existed only on paper.

Lovelace was a visionary. She predicted that machines like the Analytical Engine could be usedto compose music, produce graphics, and be useful to science.

Her accomplishments in mathematics made her a pioneer of not only computing, but of women in science.

Now every second Tuesday of October, we shall remember her contributions to science and engineering in the celebration of Ada Lovelace Day.

And carry on encouraging Women in Tech.
