Ada Lovelace - The Origin

In Access Space's main area we have large framed prints of Sydney Padua's tongue in cheek (and steam punk influenced) six page cartoon strip of the meeting and collaboration between Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace, Ada Lovelace – THE ORIGIN!

Ada was the daughter of the poet Lord Byron and is now considered to be the first computer programmer.

In 1953, more than a hundred years after her death, Ada Lovelace's notes on mathematician Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine were republished. The Analytical Engine by then was recognized as a model for a computer, and Ada Lovelace's notes as the first description of a computer and software. In 1980, the U.S. Department of Defence named a new standardized computer language “Ada” in her honour.
