  • When will I ever get to hold her?
  • Who cares! I wanted you to leave anyway!
  • I'm leaving this family forever!
  • Let's clean up, so that we can move on to math, because I know you're thinking about it.
  • Ada Lovelace was born on December 10th, 1815, in London United Kingdom. She lived in Kirkby Malloryand Ockham. Ada died on November 27th, 1852.
  • Ada’s father abandoned his wife and daughter, leaving Britain forever when Ada was one month old. Ada’s mother, Lady Byron, had little or no affection for her daughter and had very little contact with her.Her grandmother died when Ada was just seven years old, and Ada suffered long spells of poor health in both childhood and later.
  • In those days, there were no places for girls in the United Kingdom’s universities. However, girls from wealthy, aristocratic families could be educated to a high level by private tutor, this is how Ada was educated. Her mother wanted Ada to concentrate particularly hard on mathematics and science.
  • Thank goodness Ada Lovelace was the first computer programmer.
  • In 1835, Ada married William King at the age of nineteen. She had three children between 1836 and 1839. Her three children were named Anne Blunt, Ralph King-Milbanke, and Bryon King- Noel.
  • Around the age of 17, Ada met Charles Babbage, a mathematician and inventor. They became friends, and the Babbage served as a mentor to Ada.In her notes, Ada described how codes could be created for the device to handle letters and symbols along with numbers.For her work, Ada is often considered to be the first computer programmer.
  • Ada theorized a method for the engine to repeat a series of instructions, a process known as looping that computer programs use today. Also since she is the first computer programmer, many people use computers so we need computer programmers today.
