Greatest Women Inventors
Have you ever wondered who the greatest women inventors throughout the history are?
TWO WOMEN WERE PIONEERS OF SOFTWARE:
The world’s first computer programmer was Lady Ada Byron Lovelace (1815-1852), daughter of the poet Lord Byron, and collaborator with Charles Babbage on his Analytical Engine. Today, a major programming language bears the name Ada.
Mathematician Grace Hopper (1906-1992) designed in 1952 the first compiler, the system that enables the computer to “read” its own programs from keyed instructions. The invention of the compiler was a sensational breakthrough, that opened up a new era of limitless horizons for automatic programming. Grace Hopper was Rear-Admiral of the US Navy.
