About Ada Lovelace Day:
Ada Lovelace Day is an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). Ada Lovelace was an English mathematician and writer. She was the first to recognise that machines (such as Babbage’s mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine) could be used for more than pure calculation. She published the first algorithm intended to be carried out by such machines. For this, she is regarded as the first computer programmer.
