  • Did you know that Ada Lovelace, the illegitimate daughter of poet Lord Byron, is credited as the world’s first computer programmer? Born in 1815, Ada was raised in a strict environment of mathematics and logic as a child, in order to prevent her from becoming anything like the “insane” father who had abandoned her. Sounds like a great soap opera plot, doesn’t it? (Days of Our Lives, if you’re reading this, get a hold of me).
