Lady Lovelace

Courtesy: IBM Corporation

One remarkable exception was Countess Ada Augusta Lovelace, the only legitimate daughter of Lord Byron. A mathematician in her own right, she worked closely with Babbage, planned his computational problems, and has been called the world's first programmer. She translated an article on the Analytical Engine written in Italian by L. F. Menebrea, adding her own lengthy notes on the machine and its potential. This is the most important written work on the subject.
