Today we are celebrating Ada Lovelace Day !!
Ada Lovelace was an english mathematician and is recognised as “the first computer programmer” due to the creation of an algorithm for a computing machine in the mid-1800s. She was one of my first inspirations after my parents and my oldest brother to come to the Technology area.
Her childhood background also resembles mine, she had ability with math since little, focused on studying as much as possible and not having a father figure when little ! She is a truly inspiration to me and hopefully to many other women out there.
The Ada Lovelace Day was created in 2009 by Suw Charman-Anderson and it is now held every year on the second Tuesday of October. It is an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). The goal of this celebration is to motivate and bring more women in STEM, creating new role models and support women already working in this area.
