Google Pays Tribute To Ada Lovelace

Google is paying tribute to 'the mother of computer programming' Augusta Ada King, also known as Ada Lovelace, with a doodle on the occasion of her 197th birthday. Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace (1815 - 1852), was an English mathematician and writer chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage's early mechanical general-purpose computer, the analytical engine.

Her notes on the engine include what is recognised as the first algorithm intended to be processed by a machine; thanks to this, she is considered the world's first computer programmer.
