Ada Lovelace – Inventor

History books barely if not at all women’s footprints on society. This is why I find it important to speak about women who have made great contributions to our world.

“History had been distorted, and it was essential to the cause of women’s rights to set it straight.” – Matilda Joslyn Gage, 1852

Throughout history, there have always been women who pushed back against the roles society set for them.

Today marks the anniversary of the death of Ada Lovelace a woman who influenced the world of science and technology with her advancement.

Actually, Ada Lovelace invented software! She was a mathematician and writer from England. She created the first algorithm intended to be carried out by a machine making her the first computer programmer! Lovelace was pretty damn clever!

“I am never really satisfied that I understand well as I may, my comprehension can only be an infinitesimal fraction of all I want to understand.” – Ada Lovelace

She was one of many great ladies who were useful not to themselves but to all the world.

Ada Lovelace, unfortunately, dies early, she was only 36-years-old, of uterine cancer.
