Today is Ada Lovelace Day everyone!
I think it is great that Ada Lovelaceis beginning to get the recognition she deserves. I can remember reading Ada’s notes on Babbage’s difference engine when I was in sixth form and being completely fascinated by them.
The University of Nottingham have produced this great video about her:
And there is a good article on the Guardian about why Ada Lovelace is important for women in STEM subjects.
Hannah Fry (@FryRsquared) has also written a nice article that goes alongside her programme about Ada Lovelace. If you haven’t seen that yet it is definitely worth a watch.
