Celebrate Ada Lovelace Day On 16 October

ada lovelaceAs the BBC tells us, Ada Lovelace Day is a day on which women celebrate female scientists. Indeed we should all be celebrating them.

Ada Lovelace Day is on 16 October which is an annual event designed to raise the profile of female scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians.  The day is named after Ada Lovelace, who worked with inventor Charles Babbage on plans for an “analytical engine” in the 1800s. The device is now widely regarded as the world’s first computer model, and Ms Lovelace as the first computer programmer, although the pair never actually built it.
