Happy Ada Lovelace Day!

Today is Ada Lovelace Day, a day to celebrate women in technology.

Ada Lovelace was a supremely kickass lady back in the 1800s who wrote the first computer program! She based her notes, the early descriptions of software and programming languages, on Charles Babbage’s analytical engine.

Although women are making progress into the sciences and technology, there’s still a huge gap, and women also continue to face a great deal of discrimination and harassment. So take today to celebrate all our achievements, and encourage any kickass ladies you know in these fields and support any young’uns you know who want to pursue their dreams in science and technology!
