BCSWomen are hosting a virtual celebration for Ada Lovelace's birthday on December 10th.
On Thursday 10th December 2015, Ada Lovelace, the first programmer, would be 200 years old.
If 2, 3, 4 or more women, who work on or with computers, could get together, for say a morning coffee for a few minutes, or after work, to raise their cups or glasses to Ada, please do take a photo, and Tweet it to #BCSWomenAda
These will be collected by BCSWomen, part of the professional body, BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT.
BCSWomen would like to collect 200, or better still 2,000 photos of groups of women, who work on or use computers, from all parts of the world, all saying “Happy Birthday Ada”.
If you want to help to put the word out, join and share the Facebook event:
and if you set up a local event, let us know on the BCSWomen twitter or Facebook, and we'll put the word out. This is informal, friendly, and just requires people to chat to each other over a coffee or a glass:-)
