Ada Lovelace (1815-1852) is often referred to as the world's first computer programmer. Initiated five years ago, the Ada Lovelace Day is about sharing stories and raising the achievements of women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). Every year people organise their own events througout the world to celebrate Ada Lovelace Day around the 15th of October.
