Ada Lovelace, who’s full name was Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace, lived in the 19th century in London. She is known to be the first female programmer, as her notes to Babbage’s analytical engine contain what is considered the first computer program, making her a symbol for women in technology.

Please join us in honoring all women in science and technology! We also invite you to pay Finding Ada a visit, if you want to find out more about Ada Lovelace Day, or would like to contribute.
