It’s Ada Lovelace Day!

Today is Ada Lovelace Day.  For those of you who don’t who Ada Lovelace was, she was Charles Babbage’s assistant while he was working on his mechanical general-purpose computer, the analytical engine. She wrote the first algorithm for the engine becoming the first computer programer.

The purpose of Ada Lovelace Day is to call attention to the contributions of woman in technology and science and, hopefully, inspire more woman to enter these fields.

So to everyone out there, especially all the girls and woman who are interested in science and technology, happy Ada Lovelace Day!
