Tim Berner-Lee and Alan Turing

Computing history

Tim Berners-Lee

Tim Berners-Lee helped to make one of the greatest things and most useful things of all time, THE world wide web. Tim Bernars-Lee was born on 8 June 1955 and grew up in London. He studied physics at Oxford University and then became a software engineer. Berners-Lee is the director of the World wide web consumption (W3C), which oversees the Web's development. He is the founder of the World wide web foundation and is also a senior researcher. Tim Berners-Lee is one of the fathers of computing

Alan Turing

Alan Turing is also one of the fathers of computing. He was an English mathematician, wartime code-breaker and pioneer of computer science. He was born on the 23rd of June 1912 and died by suicide aged 41 on the 7th of June 1951. Turing was helping at with codebreaking during the second world war by cracking codes from Germans. He commited suicide because he was gay and was given the choice to be put in prison or chemically chastrated. At the time it was illegal to be gay. We now look back and think of how much he done for us and computing.
