Ada Lovelace Day

Ada Lovelace Day

Today is Ada Lovelace Day the beginning of festivities to honor Augusta Ada Byron, Lady Lovelace whose 200th birthday will be celebrated on 10 December. She was a remarkable woman. Though there are some today who criticize Ada being used as a symbol of the first programmer, her approach, then and now, is critically important to computing because she put the machine in a broad and a human context. Happy 200th birthday Ada Lovelace!
