Ada Lovelace Inspirations

Ada Lovelace was the first programmer, and she conceptualized a large part of computer science today. In her honor, men and women around the globe are blogging and tweeting today about their favorite women in science and technology.

The first woman programmer I met was my mom. She worked with databases in the 70s using punch cards, pictured above (the large stack of them now sits on my bookshelf, a reminder that working with technology is not that difficult) and has been a partner in shenanigans, whether it’s finding a good pair of shoes or fixing my javascript, since I was born.
