Well Done

Ada, Countess Lovelace, daughter of Lord Byron, was arguably the first computer programmer. She worked with Charles Babbage on his Analytical Engine (which was never built) which introduced the concept that the calculation (program) could be defined along with the data as input; i.e. the calculating device did not have to be hardwired to do only one thing, it could take instruction. This was the first description of a general purpose computer.
