On Thursday 10th December 2015, Ada Lovelace, the first programmer, would be 200 years old.
If 2, 3, 4 or more women, who work on or with computers, could get together, for say a morning coffee for a few minutes, or after work, to raise their cups or glasses to Ada, please do take a photo, and Tweet it to #BCSWomenAda
These will be collected by BCSWomen, part of the professional body, BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT. BCSWomen would like to collect 200, or better still 2,000 photos of groups of women, who work on or use computers, from all parts of the world, all saying “Happy Birthday Ada”. http://www.bcswomen.bcs.org/?p=433
There will be a group of West Wales women in computing gathering at Aberystwyth Arts Centre Bar on the afternoon of the 10th – we’ll be there from 3.30, come along, and join in – get yourself a cup of tea or a festive glass, tweet a photo or two, and have a chat. https://www.facebook.com/events/1502945260033968/
