Ada Lovelace Day!

Get your Ada Lovelace t-shirt @ Spreadshirt shop.

Ada Lovelace was one of the world’s first computer programmers, and one of the first people to see computers as more than just a machine for doing sums. She wrote programmes for Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine, a general-purpose computing machine, despite the fact that it was never built. She also wrote the very first description of a computer and of software. Read more at FindingAda or Wikipedia. (via FindingAda and BoingBoing)
