Often Considered The World’s First Computer Programmer, She Is Credited With Founding Scientific Computing Despite Working Over 100 Years Before The Modern Computer Was Even Invented

Ada’s notes were published and made her very notable. She became better at realizing the potential and possibilities of Charles’s Analytical Engine, finding that it didn’t only have to work with numbers.

Although the Analytical Engine was never actually built during her lifetime, her notes were nothing short of extraordinary. She began calling herself an analyst and metaphysician.

Sadly, Ada lived a fairly short life and passed away at age 36 in 1852 due to cancer.

Have you ever heard of Ada Lovelace before?
