LOOKING BACK AT THE BEGINNING
Though I.T. is known to be a male-dominated field, you may be unaware that it all originated with brilliant women.
19th Century mathematician Ada Lovelace was the first person to realize that a “mechanical computing-machine” could be used for more than just calculations. She created the first algorithm, essentially the first program, the foundation of computing.
Grace Hopper was a computer scientist in the Navy during World War 2. She is considered the creator of programming languages based in English, that could be compiled into code understood by a machine. She published the first manuals for others to learn these languages, which accelerated the use of computing worldwide. There is a Navy guided missile destroyer named after her for her intellectual contributions to our victory.
Hedy Lamarr is most known for her career as an actress in films of the ’40s, but in World War 2 she actually developed a radio guidance system intended to block signal jamming by the Allies enemies. It is the basis for Bluetooth and WiFi that we use today.
Our creativity and passion makes an impact each day and as a team we hope to inspire young ladies to not be afraid to follow their dreams and challenge themselves. International Women’s Day is only marked on the calendar once a year, but women are working hard and making huge impacts everyday.
