Ada Lovelace Woman of the Year in NOLATech Award Ceremony and Celebration
6 October 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
First programmer, first debugger, Renaissance woman and the “Enchantress of Numbers” – Ada Lovelace has been known by many names and honored for many achievements.
This year, as we near the two-hundredth anniversary of her birth, we’d like to celebrate her practice of “poetical science”.
Long known as one of the true innovators behind the birth of the programmable computer, Ada Lovelace was more than a brilliant thinker or mathematician. Instead, she was a visionary, a woman who grasped the potential of one of the earliest computers – Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine – and predicted the impacts that it would have on everyday life over one hundred years in the future.
It’s this brand of insight that not only predicts innovation, but drives it.
We’d like to take this opportunity to celebrate the work of a New Orleans woman who demonstrates the same deep technological foresight and ambition that exemplified all of Lovelace’s endeavors.
If you know someone who deserves this recognition, we encourage you to nominate them to receive this year’s Ada Lovelace Prize. Nominees could be technological founders and creators, or they could work behind the scenes, spurring the New Orleans tech environment on to new heights. Nominations will be accepted until September 30th.
A winner will be decided by specially selected judges, and awarded her prize on October 6th at the inaugural Woman of the Year in NOLATech Award Ceremony and Celebration
