Ada Lovelace
(December 10, 1815-November 27, 1852)

Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace was a writer and mathematician who worked on Charles Babbage's early mechanical computer. Her work in what she called "poetical science" led her to a legacy as the first computer programmer, and continues to inspire generations of hackers today.
