Computer Algorithm | 1843
Did you know that the first computer programmer was a woman?
Yes, back in 1843 a woman named Ada Lovelace created the very first computer algorithm. In fact, many early computer programmers were women!
A computer algorithm is a set of instructions which act as steps to tell the computer how to do something or complete a specific task.
Algorithms are written by computer programmers to allow your computer to do the things you want.
Lovelace's original algorithm recently sold at auction for a significant price!
