...Ada Lovelace,daughter of the poet Lord Byron....Well I never!!
Isn't her clit halfway down her throat?
She has her own computer programming language named after her.
It seems to be a powerful language used in military weapons software and aviation electronics (Boeing777).
It's also used in a lot of games.

Amazing.She was a very clever lady,clearly.
Well they named it after her. She didn't actually create it. :wink: It helps to be first in a field for people to name things after ya.
Here's her info Ada Lovelace - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia A female interested in mathematics in the early-mid 1800's. Kind of special don't ya think? :smile:
Her algorithms were based on Charles Babbage's mechanical tabulating computer. One of his mechanical computer designs wasn't actually built til 1990. And went up to 31 digit places. That would be a really big or really accurate number. :smile:
As the Wikipedia article notes, she was "chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage's early mechanical general-purpose computer, the analytical engine. Her notes on the engine include what is recognized as the first algorithm intended to be processed by a machine; as such she is often regarded as the world's first computer programmer."
So the title of this thread is not altogether false ... though surely a bit of a stretch.
