    The First Computer Programmer Was A Woman?

    Born in 1815, Lovelace was the daughter of mathmetician Anne Isabelle Milbanke and poet Lord Byron. Lovelace never met her well-known father, and from a young age, her mother had her tutored in science and mathematics. In 1828, her potential became apparent when she created a design for a flying machine. And just a few years later, Lovelace met Charles Baggage and became familiar with his Analytical Engine theory. In 1843, she published a description of the machine, which included what would become recognized as the first algorithm. It was later realized that this was the beginning of computers as we know them.

    In addition to being the founder of scientific computing, Ada Lovelace was also a mother and a wife. She died in 1852 at the age of 37.

    In honor of such a remarkable woman, Google created a special Doodle for Lovelace's birthday, which appears on the Google homepage.

    MAKERS would like to thank Megan Smith, VP, Google[x] and Lynette Webb, Senior Manager, External Relations for sharing MAKERS on Google's official blog for our efforts to "raise the profile of women," and we would like to thank Ada Lovelace for her inspiring contribution to the world.
