Why Ada was awesome – seminar
8 October 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Interactive presentation about Ada Lovelace, by Hannah Dee from Aberystwyth University:
Ada Lovelace is often described as the world’s first computer programmer, and has become an icon for women in science thanks to Ada Lovelace Day, the BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium, the BCS Lovelace Medal and a number of other high profile events.
But … Who was she? Where did she come from? What exactly did she do? Was she a programmer in any sense? This talk will look at Ada in context, bringing together the personal and scientific stories behind a remarkable woman.
This presentation on Ada Lovelace will be followed by:
- Sofiat Olaosebikan, University of Glasgow World Changer, Founder of the PWSAfrica initiative, Sofiat will share the personal story of her journey into computing
- Drinks and nibbles
