Change for Generations: Ada Lovelace

This Women’s History Month, Generation USA is spotlighting women in tech who created #ChangeForGenerations.

Publishing the first algorithm in 1843, Ada Lovelace (1815-1852) is said to be the world’s first computer programmer. Lovelace realized Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine could do more than calculation and combined mathematics and analysis. Her outstanding achievements are celebrated annually on Ada Lovelace Day, which uplifts all women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and encourages young women to follow her path.

Generation Learner Aigul Bunos follows in these footsteps, joining Generation’s Junior Web Developer cohort in New Orleans. Bunos, who came to the United States five years ago, is excited to transition from a longstanding career in finance to the tech industry. She found her passion for tech through a work project on digital banking and is now starting to develop her technical skills alongside her Generation cohort.
