Be inspired by the world's first-ever programmer, Ada Lovelace.

Let the insights of the world's first-ever programmer inspire you to think about machines, mathematics and the human mind differently. <br/><br/>The daughter of the famous poet Lord Byron, Augusta Ada Byron, formally known as the Countess of Lovelace, was born in London on December 10, 1815. A gifted mathematician as a child, she later helped Charles Babbage in 1842-3 to translate the French notes of the Italian engineer Luigi Federico Menabrea into English. She not only translated his writings, she also made a number of invaluable annotations that resulted in the world's first-ever example of step instructions for the operations of a computer. <br/><br/>This caused Charles Babbage to credit Ada Lovelace in his September 1843 letter to Michael Faraday, the inventor of the electric motor and discoverer of electromagnetism, like so: &quot;So you will have to write another note so that Enchantress who has thrown her magical spell around the most abstract of Sciences and has grasped it with a force which few masculine intellects (in our country at least) could have exerted over it.&quot;
