Women in Technology
By Evelina Petrenko, Dina Andruh, and Rodika Vyrlan
As a female living within the 1800’s where women were seen as very low class, Ada Lovelace took a risk to become the first computer programmer which created the primary encounter with electrical technology.

Ada, first computer programmer
Ada soon began to work from Babbage's analytical engine and created a device to calculate Bernoulli numbers. In 1823, an academic journal describing Babbage's analytical engine (an early type of computer) presented a step by step operation that Ada wrote which could calculate the Bernoulli numbers using punch cards.
This calculation for Bernoulli numbers is the main reason why Ada is called the first computer programmer.

From this website, we learned that Ada is recognized as being the first computer programmer due to her involvement in Charles Babbage's project to build his Analytical Engines. Their first meeting took place on June 5th 1833 when Babbage demonstrated a portion of his Difference Engine No 1 in London.
