Happy women’s history month lady techs. We are more than just sidekicks and breeders, we also contributed to modern day inventions from medicine, education, to modern day technology. The first modern computer was invented by Ada Lovelace, an 18th century countess from the UK who loved computers. According to biography.com, she developed a passion for math and science at an early age when women weren’t permitted to be educated or career oriented in her time period. Also, she was mentored by Charles Babb who developed algorithms for computers and her contribution has lead to a series of looping techniques which is responsible for many programs and games today. In addition, the ADA incentive is a concept for the women’s tech conferences in order to protect women’s rights. Lady Ada is a pioneer in computing who forever changed to face of programming used in modern day technology today.
