I am proud to say that I have written my first post for the University of Advancing Technology 'UAT Tech' Blog in honor of Ada Lovelace Day 2019!
Who was Ada Lovelace, and why is this day important for women, both in and out of the tech community?
Held on the second Tuesday of October each year, Ada Lovelace Day is an international celebration highlighting the achievements of women in STEM and aiming to increase the profile of women in STEM, leading to the creation of new role models who will help lead more girls into STEM careers and support women already working in the field.
In 1843, Ada Lovelace collaborated with inventor Charles Babbage on his general purpose computing machine, the Analytical Engine. Despite Babbageâs achievements with the Analytical Engine, he had failed to produce a compete program for the machine. By writing a computer program to prompt the Analytical Engine to generate Bernoulli Numbers, Ada Lovelace successfully published the first, most complete, and most elaborate program of its kind.
