Who is Ada?

So who is Ada and why was she a very important person? This woman did so many things in technology that is unbelievable to even think about and what’s even more unbelievable is that I have never heard of her. She basically developed the first programmable computer, which is the most interesting thing about her. She was also a gambler, mathematician, and ultimately she was a great influence to our technology that we have today. What’s even more interesting is that she developed a flying machine at age 13!

Also, Ada actually became a trademark for the United States Department of Defense after they developed a programming language and the United States Department of Defense commemorated Ada by naming the language after her.

Crazy to think just how much our current world benefited from this one, brilliant woman!
