Ada Lovelace honoured by Google

You may already notice that today’s Google doodle is about Ada Lovelace. According to online source, she was a mathematician and also she is known to be the first computer programmer.

The interesting point here for me is that she was mathematician and programmer. I personally believe you cannot be a real programmer unless you have mathematical blood in your vein ;) , not necessary being mathematician but at least you should know that programming has driven from mathematics.

Sometimes I wish I had the chance to explain why mathematics is important in computer fields especially in programming. There are some awesome people on internet who I sincerely praise their work on this matter, for example the Khanacademy.

She died of cancer at age 36 :(
