Ada Lovelace was an English Mathematician who is regarded as the world’s first computer programmer!
In 1836, she wrote the world’s first computer program known as an algorithm for an Analytical Engine to compute Bernoulli numbers.
In 1852, Lovelace died due to an illness at only 37 years old. However, despite her short life, she made significant contributions to the fields of mathematics and computer science that can still be seen to this day. She is still regarded as the first person to understand the potential of a computing machine.
Without the contributions of Ada Lovelace, the modern computer and associated algorithms that we take for granted may not exist.
