This is an international day designed to celebrate the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths.
Ada worked on Charles Babbage’s early mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine and is said to have developed the first algorithm for its use. She is often described as the world’s first computer programmer. More information at findingada.com including a complete worldwide event listing.
