Ada Lovelace Day is 24 March 2009

Ada is an amazing role model for women in science and technology – more here. I’m always surprised to hear from people who have studied computing or programming but who don’t know about Ada.

Also worth looking at – to put Ada’s achievements in context – is Women’s  Status in Mid 19th-Century England by Helena Wojtczak. Women have come a long way since then but we still need to be watchful for our rights to education and participation.
