About the event
ThoughtWorks Barcelona and CodeOp would like to invite you to celebrate Ada Lovelace Day! Who was Ada Lovelace? Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace was an English mathematician and writer, known for her work on Charles Babbage's early mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. Her notes on the engine include what is recognized as the first algorithm intended to be carried out by a machine so she is often regarded as the first person to program computers. Her contributions to the Analytical Engine remained a vision, but later inspired Alan Turing to create the first modern computer in the 1940s. Ada is now a powerful symbol for women working in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). About the event: We want to provide a safe and encouraging event where women in any STEM field can share their experiences, passions, and learnings as they forge ahead in their career.
