ALA NOTABLE BOOK AMELIA BLOOMER TOP TEN BOOK “Stanley has been delighting and informing readers with her biographies for years, and here, her considerable talents are once again on display…Hartland’s charmingly busy art, reminiscent of Maira Kalman’s work, is full of wit.” —Booklist (starred review) From nonfiction stars Diane Stanley and Jessie Hartland comes a beautifully illustrated biography of Ada Lovelace, who is known as the first computer programmer. Two hundred years ago, a daughter was born to the famous poet, Lord Byron, and his mathematical wife, Annabella. Like her father, Ada had a vivid imagination and a creative gift for connecting ideas in original ways. Like her mother, she had a passion for science, math, and machines. It was a very good combination. Ada hoped that one day she could do something important with her creative and nimble mind. A hundred years before the dawn of the digital age, Ada Lovelace envisioned the computer-driven world we know today. And in demonstrating how the machine would be coded, she wrote the first computer program. She would go down in history as Ada Lovelace, the first computer programmer. Diane Stanley’s lyrical writing and Jessie Hartland’s vibrant illustrations capture the spirit of Ada Lovelace and bring her fascinating story vividly to life.

Ada, Countess of Lovelace (1815-1852), daughter of romantic poet Lord Byron and his highly educated wife, Anne Isabella, is sometimes called the world's first computer programmer and has become an icon for women in technology. But how did a young woman in the nineteenth century, without access to formal school or university education, acquire the knowledge and expertise to become a pioneer of computer science?Although an unusual pursuit for women at the time, Ada Lovelace studied science and mathematics from a young age. This book uses previously unpublished archival material to explore her precocious childhood, from her ideas for a steam-powered flying horse to penetrating questions about the science of rainbows. A remarkable correspondence course with the eminent mathematician Augustus De Morgan shows her developing into a gifted, perceptive and knowledgeable mathematician. Active in Victorian London's social and scientific elite alongside Mary Somerville, Michael Faraday and Charles Dickens, Ada Lovelace became fascinated by the computing machines devised by Charles Babbage. The table of mathematical formulae sometimes called the 'first programme' occurs in her paper about his most ambitious invention, his unbuilt 'Analytical Engine'.Ada Lovelace died at just thirty-six, but her paper still strikes a chord to this day, with clear explanations of the principles of computing, and broader ideas on computer music and artificial intelligence now realised in modern digital computers. Featuring images of the 'first programme' and Lovelace's correspondence, alongside mathematical models, and contemporary illustrations, this book shows how Ada Lovelace, with astonishing prescience, explored key mathematical questions to understand the principles behind modern computing.

Born during a short-lived marriage between the Romantic poet Lord Byron and an educated mathematician, Lovelace felt the pull of both the creative and scientific worlds. As a lonely and sickly young girl, Lovelace spent her hours building a flying machine and other inventions. While her mother pushed the study of mathematics on her, Lovelace often applied poetic and intuitive thinking to scientific concepts. It was during her work with mathematician Charles Babbage that she pushed the boundaries of technology. Lovelace’s detailed notes on Babbage’s Analytical Machine include a calculation method that has earned her recognition as the first computer programmer.

While much has been written about the 'father of computers' Charles Babbage and Alan Turing, the pioneer of computer science, many trailblazing female computer programmers have slipped beneath the radar. One of these is Ada Lovelace. A Countess and daughter of the infamous Lord Byron, Lovelace could have lived a very comfortable if unremarkable life, but instead she became a renowned mathematician and writer. She is chiefly known for her work with Charles Babbage, the aforementioned 'father of computers'. But it was actually Ada and not Babbage who was the first person to recognize that the machine had applications beyond pure calculation. She created the first algorithm intended to be carried out by such a machine and, as a result, she is regarded as the world's very first computer programmer. Her life is fascinating, taking in social and educational exploits with the leading scientists and writers of her day, including Charles Dickens. This new biography seeks to acquaint the reader with all the various milestones of an inspiring life and career. Ada Lovelace is increasingly becoming recognized as a true icon for women in technology. With girls and young women being encouraged ever more into the fields of mathematics, technology and science (fields previously dominated by men), women such as Ada are incredibly powerful figureheads with influential legacies. Her story is an inspiration to anyone seeking to break new ground in their chosen field.
