Happy birthday Ada Lovelace- first computer programmer

She would be 200 years today!

Who is she?

Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace was a British mathematician and writer, chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage’s early mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. Her notes on the engine include what is recognised as the first algorithm intended to be carried out by a machine. Because of this, she is often regarded as the first computer programmer.
